Restroom during night

But, as common as the question is, I must be missing something. What is it?

I think people may believe that turning the machine off will somehow skew or invalidate their statistics. It won't, of course. What it will do is re-start the ramp period (if you use the ramp) but that's another question.

whenever you turn the machine off, shows on resscan as "mask event"
I find useful to see if apneas flagged just prior to turning the machine off or some nasty long apnea, could be that what waking me up, not to empty the bladder

As for "re-start the ramp period", when you return from the bathroom trip, you have a choice to turn it off
