Airsense 10 - Bright light from on/off switch
This is pretty minor but a bit annoying so I thought I would ask... My machine is set on Smart Start and when I get up in the night I press the on/off button once which puts the machine in stand-by mode. I do this instead of just disconnecting the mask from the hose to avoid the loud rush of air that occurs when doing that. When I reconnect the mask and inhale my machine starts up but sends a pretty strong beam of light from the on/off switch. I can find something to cover the switch with but I was wondering if everyone experiences this?

Once, I did have the CPAP hose pop off the back of the machine and the light beam came on and helped alert me to the leak but it would be nice if it only came on when there was a leak and not during normal operation. Any ideas?

And, one other unrelated question... Smile I'm finding I like a fair amount of humidity but not a lot of heat. Would using a Climateline tube allow me to reduce heat but maintain a higher humidity? Or, does it not work that way?

Thanks!

RE: Airsense 10 - Bright light from on/off switch
I believe the LED in the on/standby switch is meant to make the switch easy to find in the dark. That is a "feature" that cannot be disabled. I like the room very dark while sleeping. When I do have to get up or otherwise, the display illumination is much brighter the the on/standby switch. I just have to wait for it to time out.

I am a mouth breather so I like a lot of humidity. I had rain out prior to receiving the Climateline hose. Since then I just set the humidity and the hose temperature set to automatic. It works perfectly for me. I get the maximum humidity and no rain out. The hose doesn't actually heat the air very much. It is just comfortable. (For me)

Yes I find that annoying too. The light should not stay on past 10 or 20 seconds when the room is dark. I sit there holding my hand over the light until it goes out so I don't bother my eyes and the Mrs. but mostly my eyes. Sorry Mrs... Smile

The display on the S9 is bright enough and stays on long enough to see where you are going when needing a pee! I mean getting to the loo, not going in the pan!!

You should be able to chage the temperature setting on the climate line. Plug in the hose, and pick the setting for manual - You can adjust the humidity and hose temperature both.
