Filtering afternoon nap sessions out of OSCAR data & charts

Filtering afternoon nap sessions out of OSCAR data & charts
Hi OSCAR people,
Firstly, I want to say how grateful I am for OSCAR and it's predecessor SleepyHead. I'm finding it and extremely valuable tool for tracking my illness by identifying trends in the pressure data.
I often take afternoon naps/rests to deal with my daytime fatigue and although I rarely fall sleep during them, I put on my Resmed Autosense 10 Autoset because if I do happen to fall asleep without it, I tend to wake up feeling quite unwell.
I notice that my machine often reports very high AHI's during these rests even though I rarely fall asleep. I'm only interested in the CPAP data on how I sleep overnight, and I don't want my overnight data to include misleading data from the afternoon periods when I probably wasn't asleep anyway.
Is there some way to tell OSCAR to ignore sessions between certain times, like 9am to 6pm, when it is producing graphs, doing daily calculations and exporting data?
If not, is it possible that this could be added as an enhancement please?
Thanks,
Graham

You can tell OSCAR to ignore an entire session by clicking the checkbox next to the session list in the lower-left corner. So if you had a nap in which you didn't sleep, you could just turn off that session.

Currently there is no way to ask OSCAR not to process part of a session.
The current version of OSCAR is 1.2.0.  We recommend upgrading from any earlier version.

What a person could also do is just pull the SD card so it can not record and when going for evening sleep session push it back in to record events.
When I take out my SD card to download to Oscar I have a small laundry close pin that I clip on door so if I forget to remember to install SD card again.(it works for this old timer who's memory is not as good as when I was younger.)

I would not recommend pulling out the SD card to avoid recording a session, as the session will be recorded as Summary Only, and I'm not sure how OSCAR will handle a day with both summary and detailed sessions.

The best way to ignore a session is to untick it in the bottom of the left hand column, as Guy mentioned.
