optistart works within the bounds you supply. Since I had optistart turned on, it changed my start from 6.0 to 6.5 after about 8 days of use (my setting is 6.0 to 13.5). I saw that it did start for about 5 days at 6.5, and it shifted back to 6.0. It has done that twice in about a month now. It is back at 6.0. My 90% pressure is anywhere from 6.8 to 8.4 cmH2o, so it does not home in on the 90% value.
I don't know if sleepyhead detects or displays the optistart current value. But I was able to see when it changed, and confirmed in EncoreBasic which does report OptiStart.
Dedicated to QALity sleep.
