Last night I stopped the machine and took the mask off because I was struggling to breathe through my nose. I used a nasal spray to clear things up and while I was waiting for this to happen I fell asleep without the mask. I woke up about three hours later and put the mask back on and waited to go back to sleep. You can clearly see from the graphs I have posted when this happened. I restarted everything and it took about 30 minutes to go back to sleep (about 1:30 am) You'll notice that I had about 10 OAs right from putting the mask back on even though I was awake! The data is wrong and this has also occurred on a couple of other nights. I know I was wide awake when the supposed OAs occurred.
So what is the machine registering that it thinks are OAs and hypopneas? Like the original poster, the pressure settings rise significantly after I go back to sleep. Something's not right here and I have a suspicion that I need to change settings. I turned Sensawake off, maybe I should turn it back on.
Has anyone else noticed animalies like this and are they related to the Dreamwear mask or more universal in nature.
I've included two graphs from Sleepyhead to show you what I mean. You'll see where I woke up (both nights) and what happened when I put the mask back on. Love to know what's going on.

Night before Feb 20
I wonder what my AHI would really be if this is false data.
