Sleepyhead clock?

I don't think that's correct. If your clock is off by 23 minutes you need to set the clock drift in Sleepyhead to 23 x 60 = 1380 seconds (same as RobySue in that SH thread). In the latest version 0.9.8-1 you can use hours, minutes & seconds. You can also set negative and positive values depending on whether the CPAP clock is running fast or slow.

To establish if your clock has drifted, turn the machine on at a very specific time (eg 10:00pm exactly) so you have a base time to calibrate to. (Or turn it off at a very specific time, works just as well).

I just don't look at the data, so no problem for me.

That is some great advice DeepBreathing that's exactly what I will do tonight. So if my CPAP clock is ahead than I use a negative value?

Pick some time when it's convenient and you're masked up. Make a note of the time and then do something that will show up in the data.

I will just hold my breath for 5 or 10 seconds, take a few deep breaths, repeat 3 times.

You can also just take the mask off and let the air blow for a few seconds and repeat 3 times.

You can also just make a not of when you take a bathroom break and turn the machine off.

One thing that can be confusing is that SleepyHead tends to discard sessions less than 5 minutes unless you change its default settings.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
