Calendar issues and Sleepy Head

Calendar issues and Sleepy Head
I sleep well last night.  I did not have a very dry mouth at night or in the morning when I woke up.
I have been having insomnia issues, but I seemed to overcome it last night.  My data is here:

I turned off the calender in Sleepy Head a few days ago.  And my BiPAP unit is not working well.  I am not sure what is causing the issue, but sleepy head reports no data on Aug 1.
It puts a data stamp on my data as July 31 when it was from last night (Aug 1st).  I am not sure if it is my broken BiPAP machine or an issue with Sleepy Head.

Am I screwing things up in sleepy head if I turn the calender off?

Thanks

RE: Calendar issues and Sleepy Head
I'm looking forward to the new machine and more reliable data. When we first looked at your results, the problem was many centrals caused by the pressure support of 6 cm that was in use. I think the current range of PS 2-5 is working fine, although we are seeing hypopnea and a few OA coming through. If the pressures and results are to be believed, It appears you need to take EPAP min to 6.0 and PS min to 3.0. No other changes.

RE: Calendar issues and Sleepy Head
There are a couple of possibilities for the date mis-match. 1) The clock in your machine may have lost time or date over the years - unfortunately, I don't think it can be corrected. 2) It's possible the timezone isn't set correctly in SleepyHead's Preferences. 3) Unlikely, but it's possible that your computer's clock isn't set correctly. 4) Last but not least, you may have found a bug in SleepyHead - did you go to bed after midnight?

Fortunately, none of those are likely to affect the data collected, so just make a note of the mis-match, and see if it is consistent.

Done.  I will see how tonight goes.  I became markedly better after the big changes to my BiPAP machine. 

I have been having issues of dry mouth and blowing my nose all morning.  But today it has been much better.  Very little dry mouth. Still a tad wet nose.  But better.  Maybe it takes a few weeks for me to adjust.  My energy levels have been much better.  Looking forward to my new machine.  About 4 more weeks.....

Thanks for all the help.

Pholynyk....

Thank you for your post.  Yes, I hit the sack before midnight.  I went to bed around 9PM.

Computer date and time - check OK.


My 'one foot in the grave' BiPAP machine - Uh, can't get into it to check date and time...I see a battery on the motherboard in my BiPAP machine, but as of now, do not know of a way to check or change the time in my unit. 


Sleepy Head time zone setting -

You may have found something.  Here in Ecuador, they do not move the clock around during different times of the year (unlike most other latian amerian countries) .  I selected central time when I set it up - but that will change soon when the clocks fall back in the fall in the USA. If Sleepy Head had a selection for just GMT- 7 that would work. I do have a selection for Ecuador, but I have to choose a time zone on top of that.  I have no good choices....

EncoreBasic date stamps correctly the date I stick my SD card into it.  I changed the settings on my SD card today and it had todays date correct.  I also put my SD card into EncoreBasic yesterday and it correctly recorded that date as 8/1/17.

Well, as long as I know that sleep head is uploading correct data each day, I am happy even if the date is off.  I believe it is doing that. 

Thanks
