Looks like I am turning my machine on and off all night

Looks like I am turning my machine on and off all night
Does anyone know why this would be happening?    I turn my machine on and go to bed,  I am up once a night, maybe twice and I turn it off at those times.   Yet when I look at my readings they now are showing many "session" breaks in a night.   Last night the first 2.5 hrs it shows the machine off more than on.   I have checked all the electrical connections.  Below are oscar screen captures from last night.  Look at flow rate and session times

Any insight is greatly appreciated.   Oh,  this machine is 8 months old. Resmed airsense 10

RE: Looks like I am turning my machine on and off all night
Welcome to the forum!

I have a ResMed S10 *for her* machine.  I used to have it set so that when I had my mask on and was breathing my machine would start automatically; when I took the mask off it would shut off.  I had instances where the machine shut off.

I turned off that feature.  Now I turn my macine on manually when I'm ready; I turn the machine off when I wish to.

I haven't had my machine turn off at all since then.

I hope this helps

Yes, looks fine now.

If you have the "auto start" feature turned on, try turning it off. Sorry, dave beat me to it.

Also, have a look at the link in my signature for organizing your charts.  It will give us more info to work with.
