The Air Sense for her has a feature that shuts off the machine if there is a large air leak. Is there a way to keep my machine from doing this?
I've had the machine turn off when I didn't think there was that large an air leak....I was awake once when it happened. Several other times I've awakened in a panic because I'm not able to breathe. When I realize what has happened, I can take a couple deep breaths and the machine comes on but I'd much prefer that the machine didn't turn itself off at all! I'm frustrated!

I'm new to the ResMed AirSense machine but have used CPAP for six years without a problem.

I have the Air Sense (not for her) but it is probably the same. Your unit is turning off because SmartStart thinks you have removed your mask. SmartStart also is indicated because taking big breaths turns the unit on.
SmartStart on/off is in clinical menu settings on my unit. To get to clinical menu (from the home screen) simultaneosuly hold the home button and select button until exit clinical menu appears on the upper left. Now go to settings and scroll down to smartstart and turn it off. Machine will no longer turn off unless you hit power button but also won't auto turn on.

It doesn't shut off due to a large leak, it shuts off if you take the mask off.

In my experience, it's been good at being able to tell the difference in a huge leak and mask off, based on the back pressure.

You can shut off smartstart, but if it's something else causing your machine to shut off (likely) then it won't start up when you take a couple breaths.
