Leak rate is 20% of your score and events rate is 5%. How many hours you sleep is 70%. But if your events are high, the longer you sleep the more oxygen deprived so why isn't events rate a higher % of the total score?

A composite score isn't really what you should be looking at. Your AHI and leak rate are. How long you slept probably varies between individuals and is only critical to an insurance company seeking to monitor compliance.

I agree with WiredGeorge. I think the whole idea of a nebulous and sleep "score" is silly. Look at the more objective data that mean something like AHI and leak rate.

The funniest part of the ResMed feedback is the "gold star" they give you for having a full compliance month or whatever it is. Participation trophy perhaps?
