Also it doesn't seem to be waking me up, though I think I do wake up for other reasons. So, I only notice when I'm still in a wakeful state, just breathing normally through my nose, I think and perhaps exhaling shallowly (even with BiFlex set at 1 - it seems more comfortable than 3). The leak rate does seem to be up a bit over the last couple of weeks. I attribute that to more eye leaks I've been experiencing for some reason, and maybe switching between the Activa and Comfort Gel more frequently?
Thanks, turbosnore, for the ideas.

I do want to get the software and reader, but I'm a Mac guy and it seems I need a PC, so I need to find something cheap even if only to load this software.
What is the Mandible and how do I make it drop? Once I know that I'll try the test. Also still have my tonsils.
SleepyJoeMS wrote:Hmmm Echo. Good question. I know my mouth/lips stay closed. But I'll have to pay attention to my jaw specifically, Either way. If it stays up, will that help to block the back flow of air into the mouth, routing it via nostrils out the mask? Is it possible there are times when I exhale more shallowly thereby encouraging some of the outflow to enter my mouth vs. going against the pressure out the mask exhaust

Actually, I'm trying now without air pressure to just keep my tongue up against the palet while I part my teeth and can't really do it, the tongue comes off pretty quickly it seems. Even when I force my tongue with much effort back up to the palet with mandible parted, it does seem the back of the tongue has broken it's seal. (it's ok, I was alone while attempting this experiment, no one was watching my facial contortions...)
