    Hi guys
    For the last couple of weeks I have installed nearly all of autoapp-plugins. They are great.
    Unfortunately I am experiencing one constant problem. It is probably not related to your plugins, but I hope you could help me to find the cause of the problem.
    I have a few profiles set up but none of them actually kick in until I turn my tablet's screen on.

    I set the system - speak to google home, via IFTTT - Maker command is send to tablet, via auto remote tasker gets the command,
    1. when display is on everything works great profiles get executed
    2. when display is off the application starts, but does not load fully until the display is on.

    When I turn on the display the profile gets executed.

    For instance.
    I have a profile where I get a button pressed by the autoimput plugin.
    The application gets started but get stuck when I turn on the display via the power button the profile gets executed, the button gets pressed.

    Sometimes everything runs well even with a display off. But each time after a longer period of time the profiles get stuck.
    I have to turn on the display and than it works for some time.

    Android 4.4.2
    Samsung tab 10.1 GT N8000

    I did all I found on the internet.
    Reinstalled tasker.
    Changed settings in the monitor settings in tasker.
    Changed profiles
    But slowly running out of option what this annoying problem may be causing

    Any suggestion will be greattely appreciated

    Thank you for your time

    Is your tablet maybe rooted? Do you maybe have some third party app that's blocking Tasker or the AutoApps in the background?

    Glad you're enjoying the apps! :)

    Have you taken Tasker out of Battery Optimization (Doze)? Could be Tasker is going to sleep when the display goes off.

    I'm going through exactly the same problem.

    My cell phone is rooted. It was going well, suddenly this problem started happening.

    I have Google Home Mini and i'm listening autovoice command being triggering but the action not happening until i turn on my screen
