Good! Congrats!

Now....LEAVE IT ALONE. Leave it at 7 - 11 for at least ten days. Longer if you can wait. Unless you are hitting 11 and staying there, just collect data for a while.

What she said!!! Take a period of time, download your data into SleepyHead or ResScan, and see what the data says. More importantly, how well do you feel when you wake on day 10.

Avoid the temptation to tweak your settings (for now). Sleep-well

I agree except the change from summary data to detailed data. Other than that I'm leaving it as is. I ran the SD card through ResScan and even after one hour's rest it accumulates a wad of info that just didn't exist with the Escape unit. I think I'm going to like this.
Actually the doctor prescribed 7-14 which covers every level I've experimented with. I found what I was looking for. I don't need to muck with it any further.

Congrats on the upgrade.

You "won" in more ways than one.

Sleep-well

Freakin' Excellent, Sean!
That's how you put the screws to 'em!!
Jeeze, they kept you waiting long enough.

Glad you're in a better situation now so you can monitor things properly!

Enjoy the rest!

Sleep-well

Oh they put up a fight.

So I got the prescription.

(Oh no you said I could upgrade and this one isn't working properly)
I had to run that by them several times.

Something I need to know.

Where does SleepyHead store its data files?
After I got a new SD card (I have two now) for the new machine, SleepyHead acknowledged it but it also gave word for the Philips clunker I was originally saddled with. I'd like to know how to delete that. Deleting the program directory didn't work. The new SD card didn't work. I guess I could have used a different name but I don't usually find the need to do that on my own computer. Where does SleepyHead store the data?


Oh wait. Never mind. I FOUND IT!
the programmer had brilliant foresight to include a "debug" function which declared where the data files were stored. c:\Users\SEAN\Documents\SleepyHeadData\Profiles\SEAN\ in my case. I deleted the profile and now there's no reference to previous tragedies.

All SleepyHead does is import the data from your sdcard (or whatever else you give it).
I think it likes to stash things its own things in an out of the way place so if you try to find its files and copy/delete them it will most likely damage its little database, You might need to create a new profile in the start up screen and fill out all the new machine / mask info & stuff.

That should keep everything straight from now on.
