Default Disabled some processes, now keypad unlock screen does not show

I was messing with disabling apps last night to try and conserve power.

It seems I may have disabled the wrong thing as now, when I try and unlock my phone with my PIN, I do not get a keypad, I just get the speak icon and it expects me to speak my pin.

Try as I may, I cannot get in. Whether it is not recognising my voice (I have never used voice recognition on this phone) or it is simply broke, I do not know.

When I get it to 4 numbers it just goes to sleep eventually.

I guess what I am asking is, is there any way to get into this damn phone.

Failing everything else, I am more than happy to do a factory reset, but I cannot even get it to do that.

I press volume down then the power button, but all it does is restart.

Is there anything I can do at all or do I have to take the phone back to the shop?

Any help much appreciated, I have the shakes without my phone

Hey there-

While the device is turned off, press and hold the Power and Volume Down keys.

Then release the Power and Volume Down keys when the bootloader screen appears.

Press the Volume Down key twice to highlight FACTORY RESET.

Press the power key and wait!

Hope that helps!

Default problem with tasker and the status bar

HTC One software version 1.29.651.10 Android 4.1.2 Sense 5.0 un-rooted Nova launcher

I have tasker and secure settings plug in installed and given device administration privileges. I want the lock screen off when connected to my home wifi. THe profile shows green that it is active in tasker. wifi connected->lock off-keygaurd set to off. end task 1. wait 30 seconds 2. keygaurd-set on. It will work some times but if i pull down the status bar and click on some thing I am taken to the lock screen and have to unlock and enter my pin code. After that tasker will still report that my porfile is active but it will not be working, the only way to get it to work again is to restart the phone. I tried to use the secure setting plug in to disable the keygaurd but I have the same problem. I have a profile to turn on wifi when near cell tower and that profile works fine. Any ideas?

summary-tasker working fine until I press some thing in the status bar then the lock screen off profile no longer works.
