CPAP for Sabbath observers

Jewish Sabbath observers are not allowed to affect an electrical device, or cook, which creates problems for auto-CPAP and humidification. I would like to see the manufacturers consult with an Orthodox rabbi and develop a machine where these fancy features can be temporarily disabled by the user. They've done it for ovens, surely the CPAP is more urgent!

And a timer is not the answer -- for one thing, if I misprogram it (which I have), I wind up having the machine on when I don't need it, and off when I do. For another, I'm told the new auto-CPAP I just received today will turn off unless I put the mask on within 5 minutes of it powering up, and I'm just not that accurate at timing these things . . .

Thanks for listening.
