General :: Tasker Profile Becomes Inactive After Phone Idle For 10 Minutes

Feb 11, 2014

I have an AT&T Samsung Note 3 SM-N900A running Android 4.3 (baseband version N900AUCUBMJ5, kernel v3.4.0-1625098). I rooted it using Kingo, installed Tasker (with Secure Settings plugin), and created 2 profiles: one with a 'Home' location context, and one with a 'Work' location context. In the 'Location Edit' map screen for each, I set a pinned location w/ a radius of 200m. I also de-select 'GPS' (leaving only 'NET'), since I don't want GPS enabled all the time (to extend battery life). I confirm that these work when I'm actively using the phone.. the profile becomes active when I'm at the specified location (as expected). I know it's active because it's displayed in the Notification Panel (and it's also shown in green in the Tasker profiles list).

The issue I'm having is that after ~10 minutes of idle time (i.e. when the display is off and I'm not using the phone), I find that the profile is no longer active when I turn the display back on and start using the phone again. I confirmed that this *doesn't* happen after 1 minute, 2 minutes, nor 5 minutes, only > 10. I also confirmed that it happens for both profiles consistently. However, as soon as I start Tasker again from the Apps Drawer (or from Recent Apps screen), the profile is immediately activated again, and my Enter task is re-run.

I enabled the run log in Tasker prefs, but it basically shows a clean activation of the profile (with no warnings or anything that looks weird to me).

I know there's a 10-minute timeout in the Display Off Monitoring prefs, but that doesn't seem to be related to my issue. I tried reducing the All Checks Seconds from 600 to 90, rebooted the phone, and it still took ~10 minutes before the profile would become inactive after the phone being idle.

General :: Tasker - Simple GPS / NAV Profile Will Not Work

Sep 28, 2012

This profile is driving me nuts. It can be found all over on the internet as it's quite common, but my phone will just not run it. I simply want my GPS signal to turn on when I open my good maps navigation, and then turn off when I close navigation. My psuedo code is below.

Profile: Nav On
Open app: Navigation
Enter Task:
IF %GPS ~ off
GPS set On
Go Home
Wait 50 MS
Load App: Navigation
Exit Task:
GPS set Off

General :: Tasker Profile - Auto Mute In Meetings (Gmail / Calendar)

May 30, 2013

I've tried for several hours to let this profile work, no success so far . In Tasker I've created the following:

- New Profile , State , Calendar Entry
Title: MuteonMeetings
Location : Empty
Description : Empty
Available : No / Yes (Profile 1) (Profile 2)
Calendar : Google : + (Gmail-adress). I've tried basically all my available Calendars (individually also)

- New Task, Audio, Silent Mode
Mode : On / Off (Profile 1) (Profile 2)
If : (select option) Is not selected. Maybe I need to use it??

And another Task that shows in Text-Plain that the meeting this start (Flash)

And this task is linked to the profile.

I've created another profile and task with the opposite values, to UN-mute automatically after the meeting is over.

I made some test--appointments and synchronized my calendar on phone. When the time of the event hits, nothing happens. Even in the Tasker Log , it says that the profile and task are not started . When I run manually both of the created Tasks for Mute / Un-mute it works. It looks like that Tasker is not checking my Calendar (Time/Events) etc.

Android :: Setting Up A Specific Tasker Profile?

Sep 12, 2010

I am trying to set up a profile so that while I am driving if I get an SMS a reply is automatically sent. I can get that pretty easy. Here is the tricky part:

I want the reply sent with the exception of 2 numbers:

1. 32665*** (Facebook) - any reply is posted to my FB account so obviously I don't want an auto reply here. The *** is different with every text thread from FB.

2. (123)456-7890 - One number I don't want the auto reply sent to.

I tried Send SMS ... if "%CNUM !~ 1234567890", but when I set that condition a response was not sent to other numbers.

How can I set it to ignore both of the numbers I listed, and how do I format the "if" conditions.

Android :: Tasker Profile Won't Work With Long Waits

Oct 10, 2010

Hey tasker experts. Don't ask me why, but I'm trying to make a profile, so that when I press a widget button, I get alerted exactly a few hours later, and then an hour after that, and then once again later. This all works very fine when I test it with only 30 second waits, but as soon as I change it to the intended few hour intervals it won't work. I can only assume the device goes into standby if I wait too long which is why the task won't finish.Is there a way to do this all without using "Wait 2h" commands? I'm thinking of something like a variable time context, but that doesn't seem to be an option. Or simply somehow scheduling tasks to run at a certain time from another task. I can't really use the keep awake function because my phone would be active for hours on end.

Android : Tasker Wifi Profile - Doesnt Seems To Work Very Correctly

Nov 27, 2010

I am trying to get a profile setup for my wifi but that doesnt seems to work very correctly

Here is what i did

Cell near<scanned cells near my house> ---> wifi set on
Wifi near<my SSId>
<-- wifi set off
Now i did this thinking if in my area using scanned cells plus in range of my wifi----> it should turn on

And if the above criteria doesnt match then it should go off

Please advise if i am doing it wrong

I was also thinking when i reach back home phone should say welcome home or something ( was trying just for fun) but that doesnt work properly either i was using it with my wifi profile but the it keeps on reading the message few times i was thinking everytime phone changes the cell it reads the message to me.

General :: SGS4 Features On Non-Galaxy Phone - Tasker

May 23, 2013

I have been loving the features of the SGS4 - especially gestures. As a result, I have decided to make scripts to allow non-SGS4 phones, using Tasker, to get the same cool benefits. Some of them are pretty darn cool! Anyhow, Ill be posting the scripts as I get them done. You can then import them into your phone, thus giving you the same great fun. If you want to make your own scripts, you are welcome to post them, and share with everyone else.

Android :: Service Seems To Sleep When Phone Is Inactive

Feb 7, 2009

I've written a test service to understand how android implements a service. I believe I understand the difference between Context.startService and Context.bindService. If I am not mistaken, Context.startService will tell android to keep this service running, even after the Activity that started it has ended.

While testing the service, I have come across something interesting.

My problem is that the service appears to sleep or pause for a few hours, run a short time, and then sleep for a few more hours, then run a short time, etc when the phone has become inactive. In other words, when I am doing things on the phone the service is doing what is is supposed to. But after I have finished doing things on the phone and the screen goes blank the service appears to sleep or pause. I don't know if I have implemented the service wrong or if this is how Android services work.

The test service I have written simply sets a postDelayed handler to increment++ a variable in the Runnable every minute, and then write the value of that variable and a timestamp to a file (log.txt) on the sd card. This how I know that the service appears to sleep. Because there are gaps in the timestamp that correspond to when the phone was inactive. If the service were truly active the whole time, there should be a line item in the log.txt file every minute.

From the log.txt file below you can see that over an eleven hour period there are only 36 line items with time stamps ranging from 10:27 PM through 9:23 AM. If the service was running and active the whole time there should be over 600 lines in the text file. The phone was on AC power the whole time so Android should not have tried to stop services due to power issues. The phone was not used or touched from about midnight to 9 the next morning, so there should not have been a low resource clean up.

I have spent several days looking for an answer and everything I can find seems to validate that when a service is started and not bound, it will stay running ( app/Service.html). However, it appears it does not. Unless I have completely missed the ball on this.

I have included the and as well as the log file.

Here is a sample log.txt


Here is the service java file:

Sprint HTC Hero :: When Phone Is Inactive For While / Touch Screen Stops Working

Feb 23, 2010

Almost every day when I wake up I check my phone and 9 times out of 10 the touch screen does not work. I cannot make a call or check anything. I have to push a lot of buttons and take out the battery and generally wait a while before my expensive phone to start to work. Is there a fix for this? I've already had to go to sprit to do a hard reset because the phone got, "kicked off the network" for some reason the sprint people could not explain. Any solution for the screen issue?

HTC EVO 4G :: What Do Cell Standby And Phone Idle Mean?

Sep 13, 2010

There has been almost no variation from that. Every now and then Display or Wi-Fi would show up as about 2% each, then disappear after a while. That's all.Last night my battery reached 10%, I turned off the power, charged it overnight for 12 hours, unplugged it, and turned the power back on. I noticed two things:

1. My Battery Use list changed drastically. I assume this is actually a better representation of what the list should look like than what I had been seeing for two weeks, but the other thing I noticed was

2. My battery was draining a lot faster than it ever had during the previous two weeks, even during idle periods.My battery had consistently been draining at around 1% per hour idle until today. Now I'm seeing it drop 5% in LESS than an hour while idle (idle meaning the screen shuts off and I don't use it).

So my question is, what do Cell Standby and Phone Idle mean? Previously they had both been 2% and my idle battery use was excellent. But today they both shot up to the 20-30% range and I'm thinking this may account for the excessive battery drain even while the phone is sleeping.Why would these two things be so high? Nothing changed between yesterday and today except that I turned off the phone and turned it back on. I almost feel like I messed something up by simply turning it off!

Sprint HTC Hero :: Not Getting Texts With Handcent While Phone Is Idle / Sort It Out?

Dec 10, 2009

This is a multi question post kinda =). If I kill Handcent with task killer and put my phone in sleep mode with a single press of the power key I will not get any texts until I wake my phone up and then they all roll in. If I don't kill the task I seem to get texts while the phone is idle and asleep. Also I set the default text app the hancent now when ever I send a text it only opens handcent which is good, but if I receive a text it opens handcent the default app and google voice.

Any ideas on how to sort this out ? I did a forum search but did not find any thing that solved my issues.

HTC Incredible :: Battery Draining Really Fast - Cell Standby And Phone Idle At 36% Each

Aug 6, 2010

Just yesterday my phone was getting more than 14+ hours of battery. Now it's draining really quickly even when I'm not using it (I left it on while I was asleep). It's not facebook because I already downloading the fix and rebooted. My "time without signal" is 0% so I don't think that's the problem. I did download Quickpedia yesterday but a quick search tells me that's not the problem either.

The only other thing I did differently was switch from ADW to LauncherPro yesterday, but if that was draining the battery wouldn't it be under Android System and not standby or idle? Regardless, I switched back to ADW just to see if that works

Motorola Droid :: Wireless Diconnects When Phone Idle / Locked - Way To Resolve It?

Dec 20, 2009

I was curious why at home when I'm connect all the time with wireless that the wireless status would not display immediately when I unlock my phone.

So today I left my wireless settings page up. Then let the phone lock and sit idle. When I opened it sure enough the wireless had diconnected and as soon as it was unlocked began obtaining an IP from my network.


I like to have various apps running while at home and I want them to go through my home wireless not 3G.

This seems like something Verizon would probably prefer as well.

Is there some setting I'm missing?

It's not immediate when the phone locks it's after some amount of time .

Anyone else notices this?

I've noticed a lot of bugs but I can work around them, but this one now tops my list. What can I do to try to resolve this problem?

General :: Mobile Become Slower After Being Idle For A While?

May 10, 2014

i have Samsung Galaxy Y Duos GT-S6102 Android 2.3.6.

I am using the Stock ROM, My mobile is rooted.

I am also using GO Launcher EX and Go Locker.

When i am using my phone for a while it is fast, for example switching the AppDrawer screens, Open Messenger close it again, Go to home screen instantly after pressing ( Home ).but when i leave my mobile for a while ( 10min + ) it become slow ( when i unlock the screen the Home screen appear after a while, the app drawer take long time to load and is laggy while switching screens, opening an application take a while too.

Notes :

1- I Don't have any Auto-Task killer applications ( i had before but uninstalled it )

2- I noticed that my phone lose Internet Wifi connection too, because when i open FB messenger it show me the "Connecting" message.. i also doesn't receive notifications after leaving my phone idle for a while.

3- When i unlock the phone and start using it the notifications are revived ( delayed notification )
