I found the feature to put inactive tabs to sleep sensational. I realized that Edge Canary actually consumes much less memory and CPU when inactive tabs enter this mode. I just wish there were more time options, like:
- Immediately    (I would love this option)
- 1 minute
- 5 minutes
- 10 minutes

I'd love more granular options as well, specially below 15 mins.
for immediate tab sleeping, you can use this flag for now:
edge://flags/#edge-sleeping-tabs-immediate-timeout

i think eventually the flag will be an option in Edge settings.
