Sleepyhead software suddenly not working properly

Not sure this has anything to do with a recent Win10 update, or a Sleepyhead update, but Sleepyhead suddenly stopped working properly. The program now won't load properly - it freezes (links at the top left - File, New, Data, Help - don't work & thus have toi use Task Manager to close the program). While it seems to record the data in the "Statistics" section, under "Daily" where it used to record a variety of readings (including obstructive, hypopnea, flow limitation etc.) there is now just a big yellow smiley face (smiley even if the AHI should be in horrible territory). Anyone know how to resolve this?? Thanks.

I am not trying to be a wise guy but with all the fiddling with the Win 10 update, I uninstalled Win 10 on my missus laptop and went back to a restore point when Win 7 was in place and re-installed it and turned off updates. It works far better on her old laptop. Perhaps you could buy a clunker laptop without the benefit of Win 10 on it and reinstall Sleepyhead there.

I have an Android HTC phone via AT&T and they recently pushed out an Android update with no warning and it WIPED my phone of everything... all apps I had installed, pictures, contacts, etc. I was able to recover some as some pictures were on the SD card and I had an app backing up my contacts which when reinstalled, I was able to recover that little bit. Tech companies are making life miserable for old guys like me as they shove stuff down our throats calling it upgrades and makes me feel like a beta tester.

Maybe it's time for Linux. Wonder how difficult it is to learn from scratch? Probably do all of that & find out it's a bug in Sleepyhead !

Linux is just another flavor of UNIX and Sleepyhead has not been written to work on a Linux platform. Sleepyhead has been written to work in beta form for Ubuntu 15.04 build only and Ubuntu is an offshoot of Linux. They have also written a version of Sleepyhead to work on a MacOSX box which I am not at all familiar with. Heck, it would probably be best to run it on a stable XP platform as the sofrware is the same as Win 10 I think.
