    taskers screen lock

    I am using taskers to start and end my tablet on power on/off ,but can taskers be used to lock the tablet if the headphone is unplugged or the power unplugged bearing in mind that the system will have shut down on power of .

    I want it to be extra security so that when the car is parked and the screen is black (the tablet will not be turned off just the screen) I need the tablet to detect movement or phono unplugged and lock the tablet if this makes sense

    any help would be great

    Yes. I am doing this currently only I keep my tab always on. I use Snuko for security so when I timeout my screen I launch the Snuko lock. I do the same when I wake my display up.

    How do you have your tab connected? Not sure how you have it connected for ignition events but you should be able to configure a task to timeout the display based on the event.

    there's a difference between the screen timeout and screen lock. you can toggle the screen off in addition to setting a low screen timeout value, but the only thing to consider is if you have tasker toggle the screen off first and THEN have any events that wake the screen you will end up with a sequence of 'on off on (wait 7 seconds) off' which is kind of silly.
