    Is there a way to setup a Tasker profile to sync all data during one interval at my own determined times of the day? That way each app and widget doesn't sync on their own, causing drain on the battery. I'm a Tasker newbie and really have no idea how to use it. A detailed setup would be nice if someone has one ;)

    If you wanted to do it once a day the quick and dirty would be (Someone may be better than I)

    Context: Time
    On Profile load Tasks:
    Sync On
    Apps (Open all applications you want to load (Facebook, Weather, etc)
    Wait 10min (This will allow everything to activate)

    Exit Tasks:
    Sync Off (note this will Turn off your e-mail (gmail only, Im not sure) as well)
    Apps (Exit all aps you opened with the Profile)

    edit: it's come to my attention that app killing is iffy in 2.2

    Tasker cannot force apps to sync. It can only turn on/off auto-sync. It would be up to each app (and your settings within them) to notice that auto-sync is on and start an update.

    There is an app called Synker, which works as a Tasker plugin, that can force syncing of many apps though. So I'd suggest looking into that.
