Mine's showing 90% leak of 0.0 for the last 30 days and earlier - definitely a SleepyHead problem I think.

Mine does the same. Doctor, which S9 do you have? Please fill out your profile.

By the way, how do you look at the leak rate using the on-screen menus?

That would have to be Sleepyhead with the A10 that reads OK since the machine only reports one leak rate which I think is the 95% number.

I think the Doctor uses an Autoset. On the AutoSet and Elite, the long version of the sleep report shows leak plus other data ... press and hold both silver button for 3 seconds

Yes, SleepyHead. Sorry, it was obvious to me when I wrote it. Sad

Ahhh! That works on mine, too. If I ever knew that I forgot it! Thanks.
