Default Extreme power saving mode

Hey, I was curious if anyone knew a way to make it so that extreme power saving mode would automatically kick in when I turned my screen off. Now I know this may not be helpful for some people but as this is my personal phone I really don't need emails to be pushed to me right away and what not.
I've searched throughout tasker to find a way to do this but I cannot find a way for the life of me.
Any ideas or suggesting a would be appreciated and helpful. Thanks!

You could just use Greenify and hibernate the GMail app.

Well it's not just the email app. I was just using that as an example. It's just when it's on extreme power saving mode my phone can last for days. And I often forget to turn it on when I'm done with my phone. I wish it was possible to use it with tasker. It be so easy just to turn screen off and it automatically kick in

There has got to be a way... I'll play with it and let u know
Edit
so i got it to work pretty simple too. and of course you can add any additional variables. such as only do during certain hours and so forth, or if you seriously want it in extreme power saving mode all the time that the screen is off, then its rather simple.
open tasker,
add profile for event, click display, and display off
click new task for this case name it EPSM or what every you'd like
click the + and select action category script, then Run Shell
under command enter this
Code:
Select Code
am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.htc.htcpowermanager/com.htc.htcpowermanager.extremepowersaver.ExtremePowerSaverConfirmActivity
and check the box for "use Root"
back out ensure you now see a profile for Display Off and its on and the task is set to EPSM and we are all good.

now when every you screen is off the phone will enter extreme power saving mode.
turn screen back on and you will be in EPSM, and just click exit to get out,

**

a few notee / things to point out, is that you could also add a timer, so that if the display is off, for X amount of time then it triggers the script, or only run between the times of 11 pm - 8 am... the possibilties are endless.

Have fun with this.
