    Default Google Play Services Draining Battery After Android Update

    Yesterday, I got an update from 4.2.2 to 4.4.2 on my HTC Desire 601 (stock). That afternoon, the battery started draining at a very high rate, with the culprit being Play Services. The same thing happened this afternoon, both times it seemed to start after I did a Google search. I read up a little bit on the issue, and found that some apps can cause Play Services to keep the phone awake. Is that what's happening here, or is there something else that I'm not checking? Any suggestions on how to prevent this? Thanks!

    In the first instance, try soft reset, ie fully power down the phone, then switch back on again.
