    I always went with the standard value of 90 minutes, but yo, the evidence disagrees
    It's just like the time it takes you to fall asleep, completely different for everyone!

    Clove think the Samsung Galaxy S II is only gonna cost £708 for the 32gb model. Bargain(!)

    I don't like the mottled effect on the back of this phone. It looks pretty nice otherwise.

    Take a look at the Motorola Xoom reviews on Bestbuy...it's kinda pathetic. So many people don't even own the product and yet have taken the time to give it 1 star. :rolleyes:

    Try clearing the cache? Or cancel and restart it?

    Are you much of an 'advanced' user? I just got it today. I've got the basic idea of trigger events and events triggered, but I don't get the significance of profiles, and there are some triggers that don't appear in the various lists (e.g. pressing the reject button with an incoming call)

    I find that this is often because you've run out of storage space on your hard drive - try deleting some applications.

    Yeah but on my hero I prefer to not have anything running in the background unnecessarily. I will probably get it when I get a new phone/contract later in the year

    On my phone, Tasker has used 21s of CPU time since I last booted it, which was 126 hours ago. :p:

    What exactly does it do though?

    Anyone noticed the Android market font is smaller now?

    Automates things. Profiles I have active at the moment include one to auto-enable the GPS sensor whenever I open an app that requires GPS. Another to automagically switch to Wi-Fi when my phone is on charge. Another that brings up a popup asking if I want to open Winamp whenever I plug in my headphones, along with a couple of other automations that make using my phone just that little bit more slick.

    It's a tweaker's paradise. :yep:

    I'm not a mega advanced user of it as yet. Have you had a read of the Tasker wiki?

    You can try it for free for 14 7 days if you download it from the Tasker website, but in my opinion, it's well worth the £4.

    Downloading (an older version, newest isn't cracked).

    It sounds pretty good.

    It's a little hidden away. In the Select Action Category screen when creating a task, it's under Misc.
