        You can already do that with "Time Period" condition
        Rules > Menu > New Rule > Menu > Add Condition > Time Period
        Set the days you want it to fire
        Start Time
        End Time (6PM)
        Ok

            The 4G toggle in 1.1.3F does do what you want it to but it has an issue

            I have my Work profile set to fire 4G
            4G setting = Stared and Checked
            I have my Charging profile set to do nothing
            4G setting = NOT starred and un-checked

            While Work is active I plug in the charger, 4G stays on and the Profile list shows Work as #1 and Charging as #2.
            Unplug the charger and 4G stays on
            Plug it back in and 4G turns off!!!!!!!!!!!!
            Somehow the Charging profile shows 4G as starred and unchecked. (this means turn if off)

            I have 4G starred and un-checked in my other profiles and it does in fact turn it off when they fire.

              Just leave GPS on all the time. the "switch" does not turn on the GPS radio it on allows apps to use it. The Android OS always on and will not effect battery life by itself, only apps the over use it do that

                After you use the app for years you'll realize it works and this will seam silly. I can normally tell when I'm at home/work without my phone telling me.

                Lets keep SP lean and mean, adding bloat makes all software crap.

                  SP does not need to do this.
                  Alarms, notifications and ringtones already have a "special" place

                  Created the a directory named "audio" on your SD card and place these directory's in it.
                  alarms
                  notifications
                  ringtones
                  Place your files where they belong

                    GPS only drains the battery when it's actually being used by an application.

                          It does that now... so pay up :)
                          My "work" profile looks like this

                          Conditions
                          calendar without "Vacation Day" (on line 2) "myworkname Holiday" (inverse logic checked)
                          06:00-15:00 (on Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri)
                          at @mywork (Location based on cell ID)

                          Actions
                          Active MyWork

                          notes:
                          I use the time so my phone won't switch to MyWork profile when I drive thru it. I'm thinking about dropping that condition

                              There are a few places I go (not home or work) that a GPS location option would be the best thing since sliced bread. I for one would gladly give up a little battery life for the wealth of options GPS location has to give.

                              Work: Due to being in close proximity to two strong towers I cannot use a location based profile, it keeps switching towers (I suppose that's a good thing)
                              Home: The above is starting to happen here too, but I cannot figure out why. The closest tower give me 5 bars the other 2
                              Racetracks I "race/work" at: Most are pretty much in the middle of nowhere with their respective towers being pretty far away making "joining" the circles pretty much worthless.

                              When at a Racetrack to "work", I'd like the volume ALL THE WAY UP and mobile networks off (that would be a nice option too... hint hint)
                              When at a Racetrack to "race", I'd like the phone to turn off, but that's probably not an option :) (could it be?)

                              note: I cannot use WiFi at work because the server blocks "media" downloads

                                Sounds like an improvement Pandora and Slacker should make to their software not SP.
                                Adding bug fixes for software not controlled by SP will quickly turn SP into "bloatware" and I know that's not what I want

                                  I want this too but since the 2.1 upgrade my Hero cannot find location based profiles if they are not on. Location based profiles worked fine with ALL mobile networks off in Android 1.5x

                                  If I turn GPS on SP cannot event find the tower I can see out my window.

                                        I don't think my phone will do that and... it switches back and forth depending where I am in the building

                                            actually it’s a bug we could not catch on our device. can someone emails us with details about issue, SP settings backup and phone model info
