Open System Preferences → Energy Saver and choose Restore Defaults.


mset can modify the values of any of the power management settings defined below. You may specify one or more setting & value pairs on the command-line invocation of pmset. The −a, −b, −c, −u flags determine whether the settings apply to battery ( −b ), charger (wall power) ( −c ), UPS ( −u ) or all ( −a ).

Use a minutes argument of 0 to set the idle time to never for sleep disksleep and displaysleep. https://www.dssw.co.uk/reference/pmset.html you can use this link to for more setting details.
