How long should "sleep" last?
When I put my Mac into sleep, it does sleep, but the screen lights back up without my intervention. How long should it stay asleep? Can I make it sleep and not come back to "life" until the touch the keypad?

Sleep should last until the machine is woken up with manual intervention.

It's hard to say exactly what is causing your Mac to wake back up, since you haven't mentioned what model you have and what peripherals you use with it, which can often wake the machine up, depending on how they're configured.

Sometimes a connected USB or bluetooth device can wake the computer up.
