    I have a profile that is triggered by a text message that when received it launches a task:

    Music Play - loop on

    It plays a really loud annoying sound that makes the phone easy to find.



    I have a second task that is enabled by the first one and launches a task when the screen is unlocked. That task includes Stop Music.

    The problem is it doesn't work. The only way for me to stop the sound is to open Tasker, unlock the profile, and manually stop the task.is there not an easier way to make Tasker stop the sound from playing?
