I started the CPAP machine about 2 weeks ago. I do have more energy but have a hard time waking up. I seem to be in such a deep sleep I am groggy? Any ideas?

That sounds like your brain is still adjusting to being able to sleep properly. When you first start treatment your brain can often try to make up for lost time by getting more of the sleep stages it has been missing out on for so long, which is called rebounding. This messes up your sleep cycles and usually results in you waking up groggy. It should pass with time. How long varies a lot from one person to the next and can be anywhere from days to months.

Thank you! That makes sense.
