I would love to have a healthy sleep of 8 hours without waking up every 2 hours!!
I'm sure glad you were able to get an S9AutoSet and that you have a good DME and respiratory therapist.

My first night was pretty good. I woke up a few times with a leak, messing with the mask, etc. but according to my wife I was so quite she had to check if I was actually there. I checked my report this morning and it said my AHI was 0.6 and it listed my pressure at 11.2 (is this the average?) and my leakage was given a smiley face :-). Overall it was pretty easy to use and I didn't have some of the issues I've read about on the forum.
Me50......My sleep tech said never to stay in bed awake for more than 15 minutes. Get up and go somewhere quite, read a book, etc until you can fall back asleep. He said not to watch TV in bed, read or anything other than sleep and intimacy. I don't know if that helps but I thought I'd share.
I have been using ResMed CPAP for a few months. It was set at 3.0 to 15.0....It seems I wake up with it blowing full blast, but my chest seems full and sometimes chest sore....The PT that set it up said on the Auto it is usually a high setting of 13.0 but she went to 15.0...what do most people average. I know it depends on apnea severity and weight...I do wake up sometimes, and sometimes have leakage....new to the forum...thanks...
