    So my phone has been draining very fast while sleeping. I decided to turn WiFi off and it seemed to stop draining so fast. I would prefer leaving WiFi on. How would I fix this?

    Does wi-fi drain the battery during the day? What do the battery stats show? What app or service seems to be using the most battery during that period?

    Have you considered just keeping the phone plugged in overnight?

    Wi-Fi is keeping phone awake. I set WiFi so it would go off when sleeping but haven't tried it. As u can see when the WiFi is off my phone isn't awake.

    Something is waking your phone repeatedly. If you must leave wifi on overnight, make sure that Location Reporting is set to Battery Saving Mode....or Off if you don't want any reporting. Make sure that your Email and Accounts are set to sync at sensible intervals. Your Mobile signal looks bad....switch off at night, otherwise the phone may be searching for a signal and draining battery.
    You could consider installing an app such as Wakelock Detector, to find what is keeping your device awake at night.

    Ty. Will install wake lock detector. I have a few apps I suspect might be causing this.

    See Wakelock Detector with non-rooted phone if the phone isn't rooted.

    Main and Power Manager seem to be keeping the phone awake most of the time. No idea what those are, though.
