let's start with some random stuff before we split this apart.

sleep issues

find out why macos woke up

pmset -g log|egrep " Sleep | Wake | DarkWake "
pmset -g log | egrep '\b(Sleep|Wake|Start)\s{2,}'
pmset -g log | grep "Wake Requests"

that's from a comment here

prevent wakeups

sudo pmset -a powernap 0 # disable powernap
sudo pmset -a tcpkeepalive 0 # disable networking (prevents find my mac from working)
sudo pmset -a proximitywake 0 # wake from sleep based on proximity of devices using same iCloud id

see, verify and check your settings:

pmset -g

import private key into keychain

security import cert.key -k ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain-db
