Default Mash temp and length at temp question

I am trying to put together a beer recipe and I want to retain some residual sweetness after fermentation is done. I have read that an increased mash temperature will yield more unfermentable sugars. I don't want a ton of sweetness so how high should I get the temperature and for how long? I am assuming a step mash would be best for this. This will be a porter btw.

I'd shoot for 154-155 for that style.
