    ARGH purpose of the profile
    start when a programs in a list are started.
    count down the time with flashed every x minutes
    warn at completion
    do something disruptive
    alert or alarm or close the app or lock the screen or just bounce to home
    I am having trouble with flow control with the subroutines.

    the closestop subroutine starts before the countdown is complete.

    i had a simpler countdown that woud simply wait and then go to the top. if not enough time had passed. i thought the problem might be the wait so I wrote it like this.

    actually its just some parts of the close that dont wait for completion.
    the home key or a pop up or a notify.
    flash seems to wait but its not disruptive enough

    check if the "enforce task order" option in the profile properties (long tap profile) helps.
