Default new to tasker

I am setting a simple night time setting and whith the context to be

time ------------- from 2200 to 0900 the following day

days of week---- mon,tue,wed,thu,fri

when I first set the context tasker told me that this would result in

2200-midnight on tue and 0900- 2200 on tue (I think that was the message but i could not get it to give me the message again but whatever it said it was not going to work as i wanted)

Is there a easy way to do this or do I need 2 profiles one for
2200-midnight
and one for
midnight - 0900 ???

Default SGS2 i9100 Tasker + WidgetLocker

Lock screen management/manual lock.

When you unlock the screen, the lock will be paused.
So you don't have to unlock the screen over and over if at home. (screen off only)

Before putting the phone in pocket, you press a shortcut that resumes the lock
and locks the screen simultaneously.
This also triggers a task that ensures if the phone gets unlocked by accident inside pocket, it will immediately lock again.


Tasks:

Pocket Security
1. Task -> Wait 200 MS
2. 3rd Party -> WidgetLocker -> Resume
3. Display -> System Lock
4. Task -> Wait 3 Seconds 500 MS
5. Tasker -> Profile Status -> Pocket Security -> Set Off
6. Tasker -> Profile Status -> Pocket Security -> Set On

Pocket Security On
1. Tasker -> Profile Status -> Pocket Security -> Set On

Pocket Security Off
1. 3rd Party -> WidgetLocker -> Suspend
2. Task -> Wait 8 Seconds
3. Tasker -> Profile Status -> Pocket Security -> Set Off

Lock the Screen
1. 3rd Party -> WidgetLocker -> Resume
2. Display -> System Lock


Profiles:

Pocket Security
First Context -> State -> Sensor -> Proximity Sensor
Add 2nd Context (long press the first) -> State -> Phone -> Incoming Call - Check Invert!
Assigned task: Pocket Security
Turn this profile off after creating!

Pocket Security On
Context -> Event -> 3rd Party -> WidgetLocker -> Locked
Assigned task: Pocket Security On

Pocket Security Off
Context -> Event -> 3rd Party -> WidgetLocker -> Unlocked
Assigned task: Pocket Security Off



Now for the toggle:
Create a shortcut on your home screen and select Task Cut.
Assign the "Lock the Screen" task.
You have to assign an icon inside Tasker.
(when the shortcut is finished, you can use icons sets compatible with your launcher)
I have this shortcut inside my dock, so i can lock from any home screen.


Note: After unlocking the screen, don't cover the proximity sensor for 8 seconds.
Then the sensor gets turned off.

And don't forget to press the lock toggle before putting the phone in your pocket!
You could also activate it based on your location... i personally don't like
location based events.



Explanation for step 4-6 of the Pocket Security task:
If the event was triggered and the sensor is still covered, it will not trigger
the event again till you reveal the sensor and cover again.
You can test this by taking out step 4 to 6 from this task.
Just lock the screen and turn it on several times while covering the sensor with your finger.
The wait and profile restart is a workaround for this.
This way if it fails the first time it will lock max. 5 seconds later.
(try to make a call within this time...)
Don't set the wait shorter than 3 seconds, or it won't work properly.
When waking from deep sleep, it can take a few secs till things get active.
I've tested this for several hours, 3.5 secs is a save value.

I found out (was told to be specific) that you can reject phone and send sms from ICS - just drag the ring you can receive or deny incoming call up ... 4 possible texts appear (you can edit them in settings of the phone app), you choose one and it rejects the call and sends the message right away.

Default Detect connection attempt?

Hello,

first of all, let me express how I love the tasker. Even I found about the app only today, it is an excellent tool and I managed to create several useful profiles already. What I didn't manage to achieve is following: I didnt find a way to detect a connection attempt by an app. I already managed to make a simple script that fires up a connection when an app is launched and closes the connection when this app is closed or put into background, but this does not play well with a VoIP app I am using. I'd prefer if I could start and stop wifi/3g based on connection request, rather than on an app being in the foreground...

Is it possible?

Thank you

exit tasks: Bluetooth off, auto brightness on if TIME < 1800, pandora set off, gps off.

Action open Application Maps/Nav or any gps app.
Tasks done: GPS on
exit tasks done: GPS off.

action: phone face down
Tasks done: airplane mode on if time < 2200, all sounds off except for alarm
exit tasks: airplane mode off, all sounds revert to previous settings.


these 3 i use, if you have any others let me know. If you need help with the program let me know too.

here is where you can grab tasker.

Is there a way to download the premade profile and import it after saving it to the tasker folder? Im finding I cant get the GPS on/off profile to work for me, no matter what ways I try. Its frustrating and I thought there was a way to just save the file and do it.

I want to be able to have an action quick in after I close an application. I use Morning Ritual. When I hit the home button, I want the bluetooth to kick on, and the amazon app store. I have no idea how to do the first part, but I do have the second part of it figured out. Any help?

EDIT: I got a response from Pent on how to do this. Here is what he said and it works great!
Create an app context. Check Morning Routine. Add the task Load App,
Amazon App Store. Back in the main screen, long-click on the task
(right hand side) and select 'Move To Exit', so it runs when the
profile (i.e. the app) deactives (i.e. upon leaving the app).

I found this the other day. It is not time specific, but it does address sending the text.
