Sleepyhead Reports- Do I need to change settings?

Sleepyhead Reports- Do I need to change settings?
Hello, everyone.
I am hoping to get some recommendations on my Dreamstation Auto settings. I was wondering if I should make some changes or if I should leave it as it is. Attached are 3 pretty typical Sleepyhead reports. Seems like quite often although not always I have some fair increases in pressure around 2 -3am. Looks like leak rate increases at around the same time??? Should I change my settings? Do I need to increase/decrease upper and or lower pressures? AThanks.

If this was my chart, I would generally stay at the current setting, a good balance between pressure onset CA and OA/H being low.

Generally anything <5 is considered treated. How long have you had it at that setting? I usually give myself 2 weeks after a settings change to get things settled.

I've had it at these settings for about 2 weeks. I am happy that these settings have brought my AHI to <5. YAY! I was just wondering if I could do better. I see those peaks around 15 at the top of my range and wonder if I need to change something.
