One-or-two keystroke N95 ring profile switching?

I have two ring profiles that I use on my N95: one that's silent with vibration only, and another one with sound. I'd like to be able to switch back and forth between them with no more than one or two keystrokes or clicks.

I've been searching for software that can help me do this, and although there are some really nice automated profile switchers that are driven by the calendar and other items, I can't find anything that gives me the ability to manually change the current ring profile without having to navigate to Menu->Tools->Profiles and then to enter several more keystrokes in order to select the one that I want.

Can anyone suggest a way to switch profiles that involves many fewer keystrokes and clicks than this ... as I mentioned, preferably one or two?

Thank you very much in advance.

How about:
Press the power button (don't hold it), and choose from the profile list that appears.

Aha! Until now, I never pressed that button without holding it.

Thank you very much.

Hi HippoMan,

Also, pressing (and holding) the '#' button (bottom right on the keypad) will toggle between General and Silent profiles.

Note also that short presses of the power key will cycle through the options in the power menu, and then a long press will choose the highlighted one. In other words, you do not need to lift your finger off the power key, nor use any other keys/fingers.
