can you configure the DOS to do both fuctions? I am thinking that it would be nice to have a base line of 2 percent a day being removed, but if something goes wrong I can press a button and know a larger change will happen though the day? Can I just run through both tasks, or does this require special programming?

It's not easy, but it can be done. If you're only going to do an occasional manual change, it's easier to just re-run the Task to reprogram the DOS. But if it's something you intend to do often, it can be completed automated. I posted detailed instructions here:
