Is there anywhere to find the list of commands, such as %PACTIVE or %BATT ?
Absolutely! Check out: Tasker for Android
which lists all the variables you can use as well as how to create your own. After you read through that site, check out the Wiki which has many examples and profiles you can download and modify to fit your needs.
After you create a few of your own profiles, it will make a lot more sense and get easier. I just can't say enough good about this app. It is my absolute favorite Android app.
