My machine failed to score events, and high rate data was missing.
I power cycled my machine to get it to work. Seems, like any computer, the xPAP machine can get into a state that requires a reboot.
When pulling the AC power cord for the power brick, it takes a while for the voltage to hit zero.
Likely there are capacitors that store charge. So, a quick power cycle did not work.
I left it unplugged for many minutes to get a reset.
You might go into the clinician menu and double check that Detailed Data On setting too.

Ok, I have double checked and the button for Smart settings is on.......so I have unplugged it for now and will give it 20 mins and then, I can try lying down with it for 10 mins and see if it records anything ........will post back if it fails, trying then to figure out what else it could be..

No idea what it is.
I unplugged it for about an hour. Both from the back of the machine, and as well, from the extension cord.........i have it plugged into
I put it back in and lay down for about 20 minutes.
Perhaps it wasn't long enough but i put it in my Mac and Sleepyhead still s hows the 9th as the last recorded data
I put it back into my Windows with Rescan and suddenly I can see the 10th and the 11th although, it shows the 11th as only being on for 2.5 hours which is wrong for my mask was on for a minimum of 5 hours.
So far, up until the 9th and i doubt this is the reason, I would install it into Sleepyhead first and then take it out and put it into my Windows laptop and until just now, it too did not show up after the 9th but after that reset if showed me Jun 10th and then just now, about 2.5 hours of the 11th.....nothing from the 20 minutes of today showed up.
Since i have only been at this on this card since May 30th maybe its best to reformat the card?
I don't want to keep getting night after night without data on the card...........i bought the machine so I COULD get data read on it.....
edit: if worse comes to worse, i could I s up pose take out the SD card from my Escape...guessing its still a 2gig card and would just install whatever files it needed onto that card OR i have a few SD cards kicking around i could format and start over?
