System: "Early 2015" Macbook Air laptop. OS: ElementaryOS 5.1.4 Hera.

Issue: Computer awakens from sleep mode on its own. Whether the lid is closed, or I manually have it go to sleep, after a few seconds the back-light turns back on, the "I'm awake!" ding does it's dinging, the fan gets going, and then the screen turns on and the login screen comes up. Sometimes, it'll cycle through sleep/awake while the lid is closed, over and over. I've also tried "hibernate" (using the dconf Editor), which worked once, then ended up working the same as "sleep" after with the same problems. Just like me, my computer needs it's sleep. Also, cat jumps on the keyboard if I leave it open ¯_(ツ)_/¯.. Right now, I'm doing a full on shutdown every time I'm finished using it, which kind of defeats the purpose of a sleep function.

I've seen similar questions asked before, but none of them have answers. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?
