    That's the thing though, I do get Wake locks from that process. Yesterday I got total of 1 hr wake lock from Google services, 47 min of it through NLP. But still I had a very good proportion of deep sleep throughout the day.

    I went back to 4.2.2 because of the battery drain from Google services and Android os. I tried the OTA update, Minimus aosp ROM, rasbeanjelly ROM, combined with the stock kernel, Franco kernel and matr1x. None of them helped with the added wakelocks and battery drain. The os and Google services were consuming as much battery as the screen even with 2+ hours of sot. Things like browsers and Pulse would also creep up the list to the 3rd or 4th position.

    Back on 4.2.2 (liquid smooth) with matr1x kernel and I'm at 1.5 hours sot, 75% battery left with 3.5 hours off charger. Screen has consumed 46% of the battery, Android os is 2nd on the list with only 9% battery usage. Big difference.

    Its just random, I'm convinced. I've had a couple of weeks of lots of power with just a single overnight charge. All of a sudden, yesterday drained really fast. This morning, my phone went from 100 to 78% in less than two hours when it was just in my pocket doing nothing. But now, 4 hours later with some usage, its 74%. Whatever Google was doing in the background is over.

    Last night, 100% to dead in 7 hours, with no usage and auto sync off. Did a battery pull, recharged, and now I'm at 87 per cent with over 5 hours of moderate usage. Once again, it's random and unexplainable.

    I had the same problem only after i disabled the android device management feature in in google settings app things got back to normal. It seems that was my problem and not other apps.

    I experienced extremely poor battery life after updating to 4.3 and wiping device. Finally settled down and I'm getting phenomenal battery life. Go figure.

    Since my battery pull on Sunday am, my battery life is the best it's ever been.

    I'm convinced Google does something in the background on those plummet days, then they finish, and as long as you do something to stop the process, like a reboot or battery pull, you recover to normal, which usually is very good.

    I had Google Now, and the same problem. But Google Now wasn't really good for me: couldn't change the route, would never remind me when I needed, and used lots of battery. Disabled it, and use S-Voice occasionally.

    I found that Google Framework, Maps, and others cause more battery use. I removed the updates for them, and now battery usage by them is lower.

    Nope, but the issue is that some days I lose 15% all day, other days 50% in 3 hours worth the exact same usage.

    I just had the nlpcollector wake lock come back up yesterday. It was always present but it was never draining the battery like it did yesterday. Went from 1% per hour to 5% on standby for some unknown reason. Seems sporadic and I simply disabled location reporting and history, which in turn disables Google now. It's not like I used it so I don't care but it for sure sucks for the people that do use it. I mean, it's a key feature of Android.

    I don't find this stand by drain reliable enough and I hate things that are not of quality, and I especially hate picking up my phone only to see it lost crazy battery while I was simply walking around for a few hours.

    I had my issue a couple of days ago where it said the sdcard was using 40% of my battery. No clue what that was. I rebooted three times and it stopped

    I had disabled it a month ago.. Then re- enabled it as well. For a couple weeks it didn't give me problems until now again. Just decided to leave it off as I never used it anyway.

    I too have noticed the battery drain, on my 6500 mAh, I'm barely getting 17-18 hours with 5-6 hours on screen time, where before last week, it was no problem to get 24-29 hours with 9 hours on screen time.

    I suspect it was the maps update we got last week. I'm going to try a roll back to the previous version and see if that helps. Nothing else has changed for me. WLD tells me its Google Services chewing through the battery. Everything Google is turned off, where before I had it on.

    I'll report back after the maps roll back.

    I've been having this same exact issue, and it will always happen if Location Services is turned on. When I go to bed, my phone goes from 100% down to less than ~75% in only 8-10 hours(Everything off, except Wifi and Location and Use wireless networks checked). Till I began having this issue, I would have excellent battery life: it would only go from 100% down to only ~95% overnight (8-10 hours)...this is with Sync, WiFi and location/use wireless networks turned on. I have 4.1.1 on my S3. Many people with 4.2.x and 4.3 are also reporting this same issue with Google Services and NlpWakelock. The internet is littered. So to help people out, here you go: it is not Sync being on/off, it is not WiFi being on/off, nor is it LTE or whatever being on/off. Nor are you reading your battery percentages the wrong way. The bug is in Google Services or Google Play Services or Location Services/Use wireless network or some combination or all of them causing thousands! of wakelocks. Unfortunately, there is next to nothing you can do about it till Google chooses to fix whatever updates they did that caused these issues. I've tried rolling back every Google app I could, I tried installing the latest version, reset my phone...nothing helped. It also didn't matter whether Google Now was installed and running or if it was frozen. Like others have posted, it's not cool to leave your phone for a couple hours and have it lose 15% battery. I can play Pinball Arcade for an hour and will only lose 15-20% battery.

    agreed. nothing you can do much.
    the problem is inherent and intermittent.
    no real causes being known at the moment.
    wait for Google to fix.

    Hi after reading around about this new problem about google services i found out (in my case) a culprit and maybe a solution.
    I tried every combination of disabling e and re-enabling different apps from google and services related to those apps,
    in my tests were involved google play services, google +, google now, maps.
    the only action that worked was disabling "android device manager" under google settings, history and location reporting in gmaps settings.
    after this with acces to my location enabled no more nlpcollectorWakelocks.

    hope this helps.

    enjoy!

    Thanks for that info. I, too have tried a combination of switching off different processes. I will try this combo next. Did your issues start with the ADM push?

    I have been beating my head into the wall with wakelocks too for several months now. I went as far as rooting my phone, hard resetting it, and am very slowly adding apps back on and watching the battery drain and wakelocks. The culprit in my instance appears to be Google Maps. I uninstalled updates to GM and disabled it, and the wakelocks go away. If I re-enable GM, the wakelocks start creeping back again- my highest # of wakelocks are attributed to "AsyncCollectorListener". I've re-enabled Google Maps today again and removed all location settings from it and will see what happens, but I have absolutely seen the # of wakelocks increase when I re-enable GM. I haven't fiddled with Google Now at all during this time- it doesn't appear to be a problem for me...

    Greetings all, I am here because of a recent trip from Dallas, TX area to Commerce City, CO. While in Colorado, my Nexus 4 would completely drain in about 6 hours. I had assumed my phone was throttling itself to death while attempting to perform Google activities from a 0 to 1 bar service location. I normally get two days of service from my phone (between charges) and use wireless while at home. After reading recent posts, I still think that this is the case. My service was so marginal (T-mobile) that it could not fulfill the Google request and the continual hammering of the various apps on my phone against the poor service was the killer. Once I returned home, all was well. Following this line of thought, I would think that a proper app would be able to detect such failures and sleep for a period of time before attempting it's duty again. I know this is a simplified, non-technical view but it's the only thing that makes sense to me. I have installed the wake-lock detector mentioned in this thread so if this happens again, I will be able to see which app(s) are the culprits and neuter them as necessary. I appreciate all the posts you guys have made on this topic.
