Why am I waking up 3x or more with CPAP?

So I've been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea a few weeks ago after I had terrible headaches throughout the day.
I now own a CPAP machine with the nasal mask, but one of my previous symptoms still remains. I am still waking up a few times during the night! I thought the CPAP was meant to cure this very thing?
I am generally aware of my surroundings, as if I just woke up normally and was ready to start my day.
This is roughly the 6th night I've used the CPAP for sleep.
How can this be, hive mind?
