Help with Malfunctioning Sleepyhead Graph
Some background - I've been on CPAP since October 2015 and it's largely helped me feel normal. Since January I've been having sleeping issues and have been back to feeling like crap. my AHI went way up (averaging 7-10 but sometimes up near 15) for no apparent reason. I got it back town to consistently < 3 with some tinkering and an in clinic sleep study about a month ago (first "study" was just being given an APAP at home). 

This last week my AHI is back up to 6-8. I had stopped keeping tabs because it was consistently under control, but I felt so crappy I started looking again cause I knew something must be wrong. In the process of trying to figure it out I found that Sleepyhead isn't showing my Obstructive events on my Event Flags chart. If i go to the "Events" tab on the left i can scroll to the point on the timeline where it shows and see the anomaly in my flow rate, but there's no flag there. In the Details tab, it's shown in the pie chart but not in the % breakdown. 

I have a Dreamstation Auto. Realizing now I've never seen these flags on my timelines, but have seen them (the cyan color) on screenshots others have posted. Is this a limitation of my machine? Or the fact that i'm on Windows 10 which is still in beta?

Any help is much appreciated.

Just found the events tab in preferences and enabled obstructives. 

I see the warning at the bottom - is there a reason that showing obstructives isn't a default or "good practice"?

Don't worry about the warnings. On the Daily screen, lower left, is a Flags drop-down menu.  Make sure that "OA" is selected there also.  Make sure your VS2 is deselected. It serves no purpose at this time.
