Earlier this morning (25 Feb 16, 8:55 AM) on Dallas Morning News website reported (google it - can't post link) - Justice Scalia had a CPAP machine on his nightstand the night he died, but it went unused.
"According to the sheriff’s report, Scalia was lying in bed with his arms at his side and his bed covers smooth. Nearby was his suitcase, which was open and full of neatly folded clothes.
"Only one thing appeared amiss: a breathing apparatus. The small device, called a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine, was on the nightstand next to him — but unplugged and not turned on.
"The finding has sparked speculation that Scalia may have forgotten to use it that night."
If it was unplugged, sounds like he hadn't been using it for some time. Who unplugs their device each day?

He was away from home -- a guest in Texas. He had taken the time to pack it up and bring it. It would appear, he unpacked it; and laid it out for use.
