Seconds 6

On my phone (Galaxy S), the screen turns on when an SMS is received. This 6 second delay gives it a chance to go back to sleep before checking the status of the screen. Depending on your phone's settings, this section may need to be extended or may be removable entirely.

3. Variable Set
Name %bPULSE to On
If %SCREEN ~ off

Begins the pulse routine if the screen is off at the time. This way the pulse won't start up if you happen to be using the phone when the SMS arrives. %bPULSE is turned on by receiving an SMS and turned off after the 5th pulse or when the screen is unlocked.
