    I'm just trying to create a action to run when I go to sleep. It seems regular pattern at the moment that I enable the relax and sleep app, and I also have Sleepbot installed. My theory being that I launch the app, task kicks in, sleepbot punches in and then when the alarm goes off in the morning, sleepbot punches out

    I understand that Tasker can punch in to Sleepbot but I want the task to run when I launch Relax and Sleep. I've set this, a new profile that has the first context for the Relax and Sleep app, but when I launch the app, nothing seems to happen.

    I see it appears to be an Android 5 issue but can anyone help or suggest any other sleep apps with relaxing sounds that might work.

    Many thanks

    Android 5 did remove the ability for applications to see what other apps are currently running. I'm pretty sure that a recent Tasker update implemented a workaround, but I'm not 100% sure. You could try checking to see if Tasker is enabled under Settings > Accessibility. :thumbsupdroid:
