Rather than changing profiles, I use Message Alerts on my Storm 2: it lets me schedule what sorts of alerts I get based on rules I set up. It works on email, pin, sms, and phone.
It has a temporary mute option - vibrate only for x minutes, then go back to noisy mode automagically. I use it for meetings, and don't worry about forgetting to reset it.
I have mine set to vibrate only after 8:00 in the evening and go completely silent after 11:00, then back to full-on noisy mode after 8:30 in the morning.
In addition, a call from any of my brothers' phone numbers will ring until 11:00, and a call from any of my wife's numbers will ring at any hour. And in an emergency, if anyone "pages" me through voice mail, it alerts regardless of hour.
It's very flexible. (Sorry if I'm sounding like an ad. I'm not affiliated in any way, I just like the software and want to see it continue to be supported.)
