    My previous phone was a Nokia N95. It had a feature called profiles where I could set up different configurations for different situations.

    Is there something similar for Android/HTC Hero?

    My ideal situation would be if have the ability to assign ring volume/notification volume, vibrate, wifi, gps, bluetooth etc to each profile.

    Example profiles might work like this...

    Work: ring volume medium, vibrate on, wifi on, gps off, bt off
    Cycle: ring volume full, vibrate on, wifi on, gps on, bt on
    Bed: ring volume low, vibrate on, wifi off, gps off, bt off
    Meeting: ring off, vibrate on, wifi off, gps off, bt off.

    Even better if I could schedule profile changes at different times of day/week.

    Locale will also allow you to set up profiles based on time of day.

    Oooo, Almost.

    Perfect for scheduling but I also need to be able to manually switch for meetings and other random events that don't have fixed start and finish times. Having some shortcut buttons placed on the UI to quickly switch between profiles was more what I had in mind there.

    So, the Themes in the Hero don't work like this? I just assumed it would when I saw the demos for the phone.

    I think you are referring to the "Scenes". You can have multiple Scenes on the Hero, but they control the look / contents of the home pages. So you can have your phone look one way for work, another way for home, another way for weekends...

    You are looking for manual and automatic situational application reconfiguration. The aps mentioned should do most of what is needed there. I think Locale can even change settings based on your gps location... ie; enter work building and turn on wifi , turn off 3g automatically.
