DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
#1
Question 
Hey guys,

It seems daylight savings time is upon us (March 12, 2017 @ 2:00 a.m.) where we "spring ahead" and set our clocks one hour ahead -- losing one hour of sleep.

So what do you do with your CPAP machine's time setting? And, do you change your sleep habits to compensate?

I think my Resmed Airsense 10 Auto had a "daylight savings time" option that I selected when setting up the time zone etc.  Shouldn't it automatically switch over?

As to what to do, I go to sleep one hour earlier!  Wink

And what about Sleepyhead?

Whenever I'm faced with the checkbox for Daylight Savings, i never know if I'm supposed to check it or not, because I can never remember which part of the year counts for it.

That I am not sure of Hydrangea.  Since I am only just getting to know this wonderful piece of software called Sleepyhead.  Hopefully someone more experienced than I can answer for you.  

But in the Resmed machine it did ask what time zone I am in, so if Sleepyhead does the same I would assume it would account for it correctly.

Marillion, I would dearly like to know the Model Number [REF] ????? of your Autoset; mine is 37028, and it definitely does not ask for my time zone. I suspect ResMed has been changing the Model numbers and leaving the name the same, thus sowing confusion and avoiding upgrading older models. My serial number starts with 2214.... - which means it was made in Australia (IIRC) in 2014 - one of the early ones. Mine was also for the Canadian market, obviously.

Perhaps I should get PollCat to create a poll for me Smile

Chances are the computer you use has DST settings, and Sleepyhead gets its time from the computer. You can off-set hours in SH settings, especially if you have a Philips Respironics machine that does not have a settable clock.  Personally I have better things to deal with.  My Aircurve 10 has the DST setting built in, and my computers change the time without a thought.  Even the GPS in the car is good to go, but that clock needs a little encouragement to show the right time.  My biggest challenge is to change the motorcycle clock back to DST. 

The good news is Happy Hour comes earlier!

I recall changing my time on my machine back at one point and it wouldn't allow me to. I then had to trick it by going ahead 23 hours then making sure I was still in the proper day.

It doesn't matter to me if the times are off by an hour. I really don't pay that much attention to the start and end times now. It's the length of time that I look at and that won't change. We'll all know when we look at our data on Sunday.
