machine problems
I am having trouble with my vpap auto 25 resmed machine.I sent it off to resmed to get fixed(water had gotten into the machine) and when it came back it had the automatic shutdown feature.Machine does this when it feels there a leak in the mask.There is no leak or not enough of one to wake me up.I am an insomniac and getting woken up every 20 minutes is a bad thing.

Hi Jason777, welcome to Apnea Board.

I would think the automatic shutdown feature can be disabled by entering the Clinician Menu and turning that feature off.

Instructions for how to enter the Clinician Menu and for how to request by email the Clinician Guide (set-up manual) for your machine are included here (scroll down after following the link):

Take care,

The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

I would think the auto off/auto on feature can be disabled. Best of luck in your therapy!
