Since you're happy with 16 CPAP, try Auto 12-16 and see how it goes

I have the same problem with my S9. My breathing patterns give it a false positive and cause the S9 to go to the highest setting. I've found that a straight pressure works the best for me. Some people (like me) just weren't built for auto titration.

I think perhaps I should lower my max setting to around 17 instead of 20? The ResMed Tech Support guy said I should lose some weight... Oh-jeez
