DreamStation2 Auto-Off

DreamStation2 Auto-Off
Grateful for any step guidance on how to set Auto-Off on my DreamStation2.
I have been to the provider menu and cannot find such a setting.

I don't think it exists. I spent a lot of time on the phone with my DME and they assured me that after consulting with the Philips rep my auto off ( when I pull my mask off to go to the bathroom for example) was good to go. No it wasn't lol. Auto on works great but like you I see no setting for Auto off. I hope I'm wrong.

Auto ON and Auto OFF settings are adjustable in Care Orchestrator and not on the device (according to Philips documentation).

Auto off never did work on my PR 560--auto on did.

Auto off works. It just needs a helluva long time to actually turn off. Something like 1 or 2 minutes. Of full power air gushing out.
Which seriously doesn't brain...

That's right I found out reading the Philips Care Orchestrator page.  What nonsense by Philips not to add this basic function to the DS2 - the DS1 had it.

I don't think so according to Philips Care Orchestrator literature. I have let the DS2 run a long time and nothing.

RE: DreamStation2 Auto-Off
The 'auto off' of the DreamStation2 seems to be replaced to software called 'care orchestration'. As far as I can see, you can't buy 'care orchestration' online. One solution is to connect the machine to the power outlet via an electrical extension cord that has an on-off button. This brings the off button within my reach and I can put it off manually. Hope this may help some of you with this rather strange problem.
