Thanks!
I read somewhere that the interface stored command traffic and then uploaded it to the PC when the CM15 was reconnected. 
Could not prove that.  Unable to find that source.
Thanks again!

gad, what your seeing is the way it is designed. As Brian stated the CM15A doesn't  store the history. This is stored on  the PC if the CM15A is connected PC and AHP are running. If you must have the history prevent your PC from going into hibernation this is done from the Windows power settings setting it to always on.

The CM15A has no memory in it to store activity.
Memory used for downloaded Macros and Timers.
The CM15A sends X10 activity information to the computer.
So your findings look correct.

You may want to also ask in the X10 Forums. If you have not yet.

My system includes Windows 10 Pro, CM15A, AHP V3.318.

Activity Monitor records traffic only when my PC is on.
  - Records when PC is ON.
  - Does not record when PC is in Sleep Mode.
  - Does not record when PC is OFF.
  - Does not record when USB is disconnected.

 Activity appears to be stored in the PC.  I swapped to a different version of the CM15A, previous Activity data was still there.

What am I missing?

My Central Boiler feeds my radiant floor and this works very well once the inside temperature is at the set point. I've read that radiant flooring uses low heat temperature and high temperature hotwater isn't  needed. However the lowest setting on my furnace is 150 and the manual suggest setting the temperature above this to reduce the amount of time the automatic damper cycles. ::)  I like not having the damper always clicking on as it uses extra amps which is in a limited supply during the winter months. You can't  power down the boiler as the eater needs to be continualy cycling to prevent boil overs. However I managed to wite in a x10 xpfm module which just kills the power to the controler ( not the pump) I rigged this up so I could turn the boiler on/off from the city. In the spring I played with cycling the power every hour using a sceen in the WM100. This worked very well but I got thinking I can maybe improve this even more. I started to play with longer off times. Out door temperatures may affect how long one can actualy keep the power off before the water just gets to cool to keep the floor at a comfortable temperature.  Currently a 4 hour off 1 hour on seems to work very well for cool fall weather. I'll keep doing experiments to see what works best for the heating season.

Living off grid doesn't  mean you have to give up on home automation. It actual provides more things to automate However somethings may result in you requiring more power for example light control.
Things that use alot of power can benifit being automated. The most benifitial things Ive automated are my solar arrays one array has a solar tracker another has a small RF switch to power a actuator to tun the array both these actualy have helpped to double if not tripple my possible solar power..
Automation of my backup generator means I never have a power outage.Automation of my outdoor wood stove means I actually burn less wood.

I created this section mainly to get some ideas and offer some help for various things related to living this way.
I created a off grid place inhopes of eventualy retiring to that style of living.
The recent pandemic has made it clear howmany things I still depend on from others at this place, most noticable being propane for backup power. This is something that is unavoid able during winter months here. However if I can get my power consumption down during these times it may be a thing I no longer  or at least require less of.

Glad to see you found the backup/restore option's location on your own, (Chr)

oops sorry, I should have looked better, it is included within the app, on the Configuration page.  They don't refer to it in the help.

I built a new Pi Zero-w to replace an existing Pi.  I used T's "PiX10Hub_AnyPi_Buster4.img" & HomeGenie is operational with the Pi Zero-w & my CM-15A, but I cannot find instructions for backing up & restoring my existing configuration from the old installation to the new installation on the Pi.  Is there a link somewhere that I missed?  Thanks in advance.
