SleepyHead will not start
#11
If you google "BrokenGL or OpenGL? - TNET Sleep Informational Site" there's a page where Mark talks about the QT graphics library being glitchy on older operating systems and sometimes crashing. It might be some kind of gruesome QT/graphics drivers issue. There seem to be a bunch of youtube videos about fixing a Minecraft - Windows 7 - Open GL issue.

Another thing to consider: If you have both the 32 and 64 bit versions installed, it may be loading the wrong DLLs sometimes. Uninstall both, then install just the 64-bit (assuming you're running 64 bit windows, contrawise if you're running 32-bit windows).

Since you're a programmer, if you feel like digging in and looking at what thread is hanging, you could try using process explorer or one of the other sysinternals tools. They will also show you what DLLs are loading, etc. ProcMon is OK for basic info, but if you want to dig in, try these tools

I also have had problems with SleepyHead not running at times. When first installed it worked fine for many times over several weeks but then one day would no longer open. Had this problem with the 32 bit version and then again on the latest 64 bit version.

Found that if I delete the SleepyHead Files folder, the program will load and run fine, one time. Traced the problem to the Preferences.xml file which the program writes to each time it closes. I have two identical computers; SH has no problems on the second one and runs and exits with no problem, but not on the first one. I cannot find anything strange with the first computer.

My final solution for this strange problem was to copy the Preferences.xml file from the computer that works fine and place it on the my "troublesome" computer as a read only file. Everything works fine now. This is really strange!

So, if you have a problem similar to mine - try replacing the Preferences.xml with an empty, read only file

I have the ResMed S-10 AutoSet. I have a PC but unfortunately it does not have an SD slot to be able to read the card. I have a MacBook Pro and I had been using with SleepyHead software but recently (2017) I started having problems reading SleepyHead in the MAC. The problem started when SleepyHead said to upgrade to a new software and when I attempted the upgrade MA-OS would not allow it because it was not an approved software for use in MacBookPro.  I then followed MAC-OS instructions that I could overrule restriction by going into Finder and  gave permission to download the new beta version. Unfortunately, after following the process the computer would freeze while importing data and in a few words, it never imported data anything complete to be able to do reading of my sleep data. I worried about other software interface problems so I decided to uninstall SleepyHead and all data that had been downloaded as it was of no use since the Beta version could not read in MAC-OS..

My question is if anyone knows if there are other software able to read RESMED SD. Has anyone used Airview feature in S10 and able to read data through RESMED using WiFi feature in S10? 

When will SleepyHead coordinate with Apple and issue an approved software for MacOS users?

From what I understand, the creator of SleepyHead has some health issues which have prevented him from working on it.
