I want to find a way to get these exact settings;

While lid is open: Display sleep -->10 minutes ; Computer sleep --> 20 minutes
While lid is closed: Display sleep --> immediate ; Computer sleep --> 10 minutes ;
Time it takes to switch from sleep to hibernate ("standbydelay" in terminal) --> 12 hours

I am completely open to using terminal. I have gone into the sudo pmset settings before and changed those in order to try to get these^^ settings. But never exactly these. Anyone have any suggestions as to how to apply these settings i want?
QUOTE Thanks

I don't think you can change anything besides what is given to you in the energy saver settings.
