How is tasker on the battery?
How do I actually set up a task to run on startup? Or does it automatically execute? Since i believe all profiles are in a waiting state, yes?I have the map being sent to my Google voice number via SMS and although it works when I test it, it doesn't when I start the phone. I'm not seeing the option anywhere.
Also, Anyone now of a way that I can kill all apps if the CPU load is near 100% load for x amount of time?
I had an app get stuck last night and my phone ran at 100% for about 5 hours and it killed the battery. Probably got pretty warm too.
I suppose I could use the battery temp variable. I know I could set it to turn things off at night but I would like to know if tasker is capable of adjust anything based on the CPU load

Well, when you set up the context for the tasks to run, select:
event > system > device boot
then every task you place in that context will run on startup.
To my knowledge, cpu isn't something that's in the current capabilities, but may be implemented at a later time. I do know that the OS ought to be shutting down programs when there's too much load, but i'm not sure if that's based on RAM alone or if that includes cpu too. You can set up tasks based on battery power and battery temp, though, so that may be your best bet if you're having problems like you described.
I bought the tasker just for the fun of it... been playing with it, but I think I have not even scratch the surface yet...
25cents... I am thinking of making a task that run the "Barnacle App" then it would hit the "Start" button then the "Associate" button?
I use profile and context interchangeably even though they're slightly different, and tasks are dependent on contexts.
Are you using the trial version or something? I can't fathom why event would be unavailable to you.
