I sleep 4 hrs at most. I am new on the machine so it will get better. I hope.

Average time on mask the last 30 days is 9:06. But I don't think I sleep nearly that much. Probably not more than 9:02 or so.
Would be more except for the morning freight train that comes rolling through the bedroom... aka puppies.
I sometimes sleep a LOT.
On CPAP, my machine averages about 8.6 hours per day, including naps, and I am sleeping almost all of it.
Since my total hip replacement 8 days ago, I am down to about 4-6.5 hours.
This is NOT due to pain but is mostly due to INCREASED ENERGY. Everyone tells you to expect to crash or at least be greatly depleted after joint replacement but you can't prove that by me.
It just feels like I am THROUGH sleep sooner and need to sleep LESS. I took a week of vacation (literally) to do the hip so all this was discovered when I literally could sleep as much or as little (knowing I could always go back to bed) as I wished.
With working the last 2 days, it's important to be more careful of getting closer to 8 hours each night since it's impossible to guarantee there will be time for any more rest (e.g., lunchtime nap) -- in fact with might job, I could get stuck on a round the clock server down trouble response.
Sleep study AHI: 49 RDI: 60 -- APAP 10-11 w/AHI: 1.5 avg for 7-days (up due likely to hip replacement recovery)

About 6:30 on long term average.

About 7.5 hrs. usually straight through.
The norm for me is 4 to 5 hours but I wake up every 2 hours most of the time. I don't wake up to go to the bathroom and most of the time. I have been doing that for about 8 years now. I attribute it to high stress.
8 to 11. All on the machine. But have only had the machine for six nights now. Before that it was about 5 to 6 hrs.
