SleepyHead last night pulled a new one on me. It showed two separate periods, one of 10 minutes and the other of 8 minutes, with no data, as though I had either turned off the machine or removed the hose several times during the night. However, those events didn't happen, and my memory was confirmed first by ResScan, which showed only one "mask event" for the entire night. I could also tell there were no breaks during the night by the urgency of my desire to visit the bathroom when I awoke! I checked the Session Information, as I always do since the DST issue arose, and it was accurate except for the unexplained gaps. As far as I have noticed, this is a first. Anyone else had this issue?

then, it's clearly a sleepyhead problem and probably just a one time blip in the beta program. i would set up a new user and download again to see what you get a second time. if its better, go back to the original and purge today's date and start again. if it's the same i wouldn't worry about it.

Which version of SH are you using? Operating system, etc.

The more information like you provide can provide Jedimark the ability to narrow things down if it happens to be in his current build.

Thinking-about I have never seen anything like this in my Version 0.9.2-2 MacOS version.

Tried the purge function (several times) as suggested, but SleepyHead failed to purge the selected day's data. Didn't purge any data, for that matter, although I tried several times. Opened and closed main program several times to confirm. I then removed the data for today located in its database [c:\(user)\my documents\sleepyheaddata\profiles\(my profile)\ResMed_*\(14 files dated today)], opened SleepyHead and confirmed nothing was reflected for today in any of its menus, closed and opened SleepyHead several times, and re-imported. Same data gaps as before.

I use Win7x64, SleepyHead 0.9.2-1. Other than the doubling issues created by DST, I have had no other problems.

It is possible that there is an anomoly in the data That Resmed can account for that Sleepyhead does not. I would keep an eye on it and see if it continues. If it does you may want to format the SD card just in case there is an issue going on with the card. I have had things like that occur with my SD cards for my camera and a format usually sorts it out.

A good suggestion. As I normally format ever 3-4 days anyway, I went ahead this morning and did so and will see if this re-occurs tomorrow. However, since this is the first time in over 45 days of usage of SleepyHead for this to occur, something different certainly did happen. And the fact that ResScan may have corrected the anomaly is also possible. But who knows?

Same here, had a 20 minute gap for the first time in almost two months.
