    Hi. Has anybody got a simple WIFI profile I can steal?

    I just need it to tell Tasker to:


    Turn on Wifi when screen is on.
    Turn off wifi when screen is turned off.
    Turn on wifi every 1 hour.

    Thanks

    Edit: I seem to have done 1 and 2 above, but having problems getting wi-fi to automatically turn on for a couple of minutes every hour or so. Is this possible?

    Yes. Screen off - check for updates every hour or 2 hours between 9am and 11pm.

    Thanks

    I have tried to do this by setting up a timed wifi and "repeat every hour" but am not sure it's working.

    Turn your mobile data off, send yourself an email and check the phone received it after an hour
