Hi Texwire,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You might take a look at the "SleepyHead" thread at the top of this page to see if there is something that will help you with your installation.
Best of luck to you with your CPAP therapy and with getting "SleepyHead" set up.

There are two sheepy files at the bottom of the list. Click on the one that says "opengl." That should install for you. If it doesn't work right, then click on the one that says "brokengl."

Right click on the file, hold the button down, and drag it to your desktop. Then when the menu comes up tell it to create a shortcut. Or, right click on it where it is, and tell it to create a shortcut, then find the shortcut it creates and move it to the desktop.

RE: Trouble loading sleepyhead
On another (Vista) computer, I installed "broken GL" version of SleepyHead, and was unable to import data. Somehow, I found and then installed the Open GL version, and ran it successfully.

I'm now at another (XP) computer, and encountering the same issue, but I can't find where to fetch the "Open GL" Windows version. Can anybody steer me?

See Retired_Guy's post for the link and when you get to the sourceforge page just look for the link that says "Download SleepyHead-Testing-0.9.8-1-Windows-32bit.zip (41.3 MB)".

After you download it and unzip to a folder, you should find both versions of the program. Just create a shortcut on your desktop to whichever version you want to use (broken GL or the other that uses Open GL).
