Could have sworn I could see them at night for the first week but I must be mistaken.
Do you soft or hard turn off your machine? (If that makes sense!)
The clinical manual provide more information, available via Email, scroll down to section three

CPAP day start at midday but you should be able to see the data of last night (until you go to bed at night or taking an afternoon nap), press and hold both silver button and turn the push dial (all explained in the clinical manual)

By downloading the software, you can see more detailed stats and detailed graphs which gives you better understanding of whats going on
ResScan and SleepyHead (also works with Mac computers) download links

Whoops! Zonk's right. For some reason I thought you had a Fisher & Paykel.

I currently use a set pressure machine but need a new one.
I was going to upgrade to an auto machine UNTIL my hubby asked about whether the more features, settings and controls would make it more likely to fail or need repairs? $3000+ for a new machine is a lot of money so I'd love your feedback on most reliable for my money. .

I can't speak for anything other than the resmed s9 models, but there's no difference at all between the various S9 models.

except the firmware.

open 'em up and they're all the same inside, same components.

admittedly, I've only opened up an elite (plain cpap) and an adapt (adaptive servo ventilator) so far, but given the differences in the price, and function, there's no reason to think that the rest of them in between those two extremes aren't the same too Smile
