    Acording to Gsam battery monitor android system and kernel android is are the main battery hoggers. Wakelock is combined wakelocks. When not in use with wifi, data and location turned off it will lose about 1% every 20 min. I go to bed with it at 100% and wake up it will be about 70%. With all that turned but idle it will lose 1% every 8-10 minutes. If I'm using the phone doesn't matter what, talking, using an app, maps whatever it will lose 1% every 1-2 minutes. Stock battery monitor in phone settings claim shopkick is keeping phone Awake 6-8 hours but not sure how accurate that is as on gsam shopkick is at thevery bottom of the app suckered list. I'm not rooted so I can't use wake lock detector. Which is more accurate gsam or stock battery monitor? How can I find out what is really keeping my phone awake? This is my first time ever posting on a forum so please forgive me if I didn't provide enough info. I have screen shots but can't seem to post them

    Install Wakelock Detector. Then read Wakelock detector with non-rooted phone. That will tell you what's causing the wakelocks.

    Do I have to connect my phone to my pc and download all that stuff to my pc just to get wakelock detector to work? Seems like a lot of steps for one app. I'm able to attach screen shots now. Here they are. Hope this helps in diagnosing the issue.

    Does it have to be plugged into the PC in order for it to work? I got it to work and I thought that WakeLock Dectcor would work from then on once I did all that stuff. I unplugged the phone and now it's telling me i need root access again
