Turning off humidifier
I've had a lot of trouble with waking up to find my mask on the floor several times each night. I've discovered that I sleep much longer with fewer wake-ups if I turn the humidifier completely off with an empty chamber. Last night was 6 hrs 12 minutes, which is up from averaging 3 to 4 hours.

So my question is will this hurt my Airsense for her?

RE: Turning off humidifier
As long as humidity level turned off, doesn't hurt the machine, the machine doesn't start without the water tank inserted
The other option to get a 'side cover', attached to the side of the machine and replace the water tank
