I will try the auto sync think to make sure that works at least..
EDIT: Well I set the autosync profile up again....tasker says that there is no profile active...so no idea IF it will work at all....do I still leave the 'standard' auto sync on in the android settings? cos right now im keeping a constant connection to the net (as the apn thing wasn't working at all) so wouldn't everything just auto sync anyway, not the 2 hrs I've set it for....so how am i to tell if its working?
EDIT 2: just to see if It did work I reset the time values to now....and lo and behold....nothing >.< I think im just gonna go back to "Settings Profile" at this rate...it might not be as intuitive or as feature filled, but damn I could get it to do my internet properly..
I was experiencing the same issue, then I tried using a plug in called widgetsoid with which Tasker would tell to turn on mobile data for 2 minutes while my other profile would turn on to do the auto syncing for 2 minutes...that worked and it does both every hour on the hour and after two minutes, it turns off mobile data and turns off auto sync.
I turn on my phone around 5 AM and turn if off to charge for the night around 10 PM when I go to bed, generally it still has about 30% left on the battery when I plug in the charger for the night.
