RE: Hypopnea 15 plus a night
Due to the slower adjusting within the Philips Respironics machines, I would try an increase to your min pressure to 7.5 or so to help it get closer to the beginning of therapy pressures, based on your needs.

I would increase min pressure too as Dave suggested, but I'd raise it up a little more to 8.5cm-do you have Flex enabled by chance, I can't see it on the chart.

Yes flex is on 3 

Ramp is on 10 for 30 minutes put it on 20 min before sleep.

Can I ever not have to use machine ?

It probably does have that, I didn't know what Respironics called it, but maybe something like smart start and stop. Unfortunately they're not terribly reliable in doing so, genetically speaking.

RE: Hypopnea 15 plus a night
Follow Phaleronic's suggestions above.

Minimum set at 8.5
Try Flex at 2 or 3.

Also, try to wean off using the Ramp feature.
