Any thoughts on my graphs here? I can't figure out why I get leaks when pressure spikes then goes away
My first thought is a very small mask movement leak and not related to pressure at all.
You can always test things by doing a fixed pressure experiment.

I would be doing the happy dance for all the world to see if that was my leak line. Damn near perfect 0.0.
If they weren't hitting your eyes and waking you up I would say shrug your shoulders and move on.
Would it be crazy to tape some cloth on my nose to block the air or something?

To keep the air from hitting the eyes????
Not all that crazy. All you want to do is keep the leaks from waking you up because they sure aren't bad enough to impact therapy itself. It's the sleep disruption side of those tiny very brief leaks that make me want to fix them...not from therapy effectiveness side of things.
Anything that disrupts our sleep is unwanted because sleep is our primary goal.
