Do I unplug my machine after?
RE: Do I unplug my machine after?
(03-16-2020, 06:59 PM)sheepless Wrote: I have mine plugged into a surge protector, plugged in and on (standby, power saver or whatever it's called) all the time. more than you asked, I stop therapy with the power button (short press to standby) & restart with smartstart by breathing through the mask.

I do much the same as above.. but will usually let the machine turn itself off at times as well ( I use the auto-on/ auto-off setting on my Dreamstation.)

When I get up in the middle of the night I manually turn it off for the couple of minutes I'm up, and then let auto-on start it up again when I get back in to bed.

In the morning when I get up I let auto-off shut it down because I feel the air dries any residual moisture in the hose and mask after I remove my mask ( I don't use the humidifier, so there is now water in the tank creating moisture in the hose.)
