Wondering why sometimes I have a lot of water left in the humidifier after a night's sleep, and other times, it is completely dry, or almost dry?

I fill it to the same level every night, and other settings are the same. Very confusing.

I find the biggest factor is the amount of time I sleep. If I sleep 9 hours I pretty much use all the water (AirSense 10). If I sleep 6 then there is lots left in the morning. Room relative humidity is going to have a lessor effect. Dry air, especially if the humidifier is in Auto is going to use more water.

All of the machines made in the last 6 - 7 years have sensors in them which detect the humidity, temperature, etc and adjust themselves to maximise efficiency. This will also vary the amount of water they use. Or at least that's what the manufacturers say.
