To start, big thanks to sconix for the guidance.
I finally am starting to understand the mode change trigger. It was the "not" condition that was hanging me up. My Home WiFi mode now only triggers on when Night mode is not active. I thnk it goes like this, When connected to either of these 2 access points, turn on Home WiFi mode, only if Night mode is not active.
I also added a time of day trigger to Home WiFi, the opposite of the time of day trigger for Night mode. I probably didn't need the second time of day trigger on Home WiFi.
I did notice that when Night mode closed, while the screen was off, when I turned the screen on, the wallpaper setting hadn't changed. Upon removing from the Touchstone, the wallpaper changed, I guess due to the re-read of the triggers.
I have a similiar situation, in daytime, at home, when the Pre WiFi has trouble swtiching from 1 access point to the other, it goes to Default mode, then eventually Home WiFi. This happens several times a day. The only big difference is that the cell data is turned on the Default mode. I suppose a time delay would have helped this. I don't think a mode change trigger would help this. I hoping the upgrade to a N dual band router would eliminate the need for a 2nd access point and provide an adequate signal over the whole house, but I'm doubtful this will be a cure.
Lastly, the suggestion to add MS app to WiFi mode, is basically a catchall solution if the other above triggers were not used, and in theory could happen repeatedly thru the night if the WiFi signal is weak or variable?
Sorry, I couldn't read all 55 pages of this thread, but is the advanced topic of what triggers and settings are the most bulletproof of webOS bugs in any of those pages?
