    Task - Variable - Set Variable - %KEYGUARD to 0
    Awesome, that worked great - thanks.

    One thing though, how do I set it to Lock like I pushed the power key on the top left? The only Lock I can find has me typing a numeric password to unlock, not the Keyboard Pattern.

    Also, can someone tell me how to set the Profile Status "Wifi Disconnect" part bolded above? Is this supposed to refer to another profile? Not sure how to set this within a Task. Thanks.

    Is there a way to make any of the SMS stuff work with google voice?

    Also is K9 email the only email app that works with tasker?

    I'm going crazy trying to figure out how to have Tasker turn off my Wifi between the hours of 12:30am - 7:00am IF my screen is off. I can get it to turn off Wifi in that time frame without setting a variable but when I add the variable SCREEN ~ OFF it won't turn off. I'm going mad here. Any ideas? Thanks!

    @rolltide: I think you'll have to post your profiles and tasks to get help with this.

    I actually got it figured out. But now I'm questioning if it's worth it. I'm still pretty new to this. Do you think it actually preserves the battery to have WiFi and GPS shut off when the screen goes off? Is there any reason I wouldn't want to do that? I guess the 3G connection handles any data requests when Wifi goes off, but does that use significantly less power than WiFi? Forgive me if this is the incorrect forum to post this question.

    Thanks!

    Hey 25cents --

    awesome work!

    I'm a bit daft, 'tho, 'cause I'm just getting a Google Voice SMS that says "%batt %loc".

    I added a 1 minute wait before "compose sms".

    Any ideas?

    TIA!

    The task is in the tasker section and is called "Profile Status". Basically it allows you to enable/disable profiles.

    However my Tasker script needs some revisions because I discovered that disabling a profile reverts the settings (in other words disabling the Wifi Near profile often turns wifi back off). To get around this actions you want to remain after disabled the profile should be made into separate named tasks and executed with the Tasker task "Perform Task".

    Anyone know a plug-in that lets you toggle when the phone uses Google voice to make calls, or uses the main number?

    Everyone I work with has my GV number, so at work I want it to default to the GV for outbound calls. But when I'm at home, I want to use my VZW number. I tried the "Locale Google Voice Set Plug", but it doesn't seem to have the ability to toggle the calling mode, unless I'm missing something.

    Also, setting it to use GV on wi-fi would save me some minutes.

    TIA!!


    Also, I won't ask for help without offering something. It might have been posted but here's a profile to offer:

    Flip to silence: (turn the phone on the screen, and it's silent. Great for meetings)

    Trigger:
    Orientation is Face Down

    Task:
    Silent Mode: ON

    Exit Task:
    Silent Mode: Off

    Also to turn off interrupting notifications when music is playing:

    Trigger:
    Application on: Rhapsody / Pandora / etc.

    Task:
    Notification volume = 0.

    Exit Task: Notification Volume = 5 (or whatever value you like for default)

I let wi-fi, bluetooth, gps, (all services) run 24/7. If they're not needed by an app, they don't use any battery. Why all the effort to duplicate what Android does just fine on it's own?
    And how does Android know when you are home to reconnect to the memorized router SSID? Wifi is powered and searching which is why I want to power it off when I am away from home. I have 10 IMAP folders running IDLE push so I need to conserve my battery when I can to make it through the day.

    I revised my method since it was toggling the wifi on every time I unlock the screen even though I was setting a 10 minute cooldown.

    The following profiles check every 15 minutes and connect me to my home router if it is in range. It will also disable wifi whenever I disconnect from my current connection whether it be at home or at a Starbucks.


    Profile Home Wifi
    Context
    Wifi Near
    SSID: myroutername
    toggle wifi checked
    Task(s)
    Wifi On

    Profile Wifi Connected
    Context

    Task
    Profile Status "Wifi Disconnect" on

    Profile Wifi Disconnect
    Context
    Wifi Connected invert
    Task
    Wifi off
    Profile Status "Wifi Disconnect" off

    Profile Home Wifi Checker
    Context Time every 15 minutes
    Task Profile Status "Home Wifi" On
    Task Wait 30 seconds
    Task Profile Status "Home Wifi" Off
    Hi Matt - I used this profile, but for some reason, my Wifi is not staying connected even when I'm sitting in the same spot 5 feet from the router. Any thoughts as to what the issue might be? When I look at my profiles, "Home Wifi" and "Wifi disconnect" have disabled red circles next to them, even though I've enabled them.

    Thanks.

    Edit: Oops, just saw your post above where you say you need to revise your profiles.
