Since my AirSense 10 is out of warranty, I was wondering if there are any clever individuals who may have created a firmware hack for this device such as adjusting the Ramp time to higher than 45 minutes?

Why on earth would you want a ramp time > 45 minutes? During the ramp your machine can't treat apneas or hypopneas. The idea is to reduce ramp time and wean yourself off it.

My Respironics had a ramp feature of up to 4 hours. Blink

I thought what the ramp is for the ones who are disturb and had difficulty to get asleep.
The target is to make it as shorter as possible and on ideal, what the ramp is not needed.

I don't see what is the purpose of a ramp up to 4 hrs...

The idea is to use ramp when first starting out if your having a hard time adjusting to the pressure.
Then as time goes on and you get used to therapy, you should try to cut back on ramp time.  
Most of us end up eliminating it altogether.

Even 45 minutes is too long.
