    My quick advice is to disable all Google location services. It works like a charm.

    I did all that...didn't seem to work for me. Basically, I've given up. It looks like it doesn't really work against me. I'm watching to see what kind of battery life I get now.

    Here's my current battery screen shot...I last charged Sunday morning. I'm not a very heavy user...I did make a phone call yesterday afternoon and have done some surfing in between. My battery life seems to be slightly better...hard to tell just yet.

    Sorry, I thought you were on a Nexus 7. I really don't know what to do in your case.

    I've had mine since March and I even got the ICS update and I never had that issue before. Why not just buy an extended battery?

    What issue? You mean your WiFi is always turned off and doesn't come on by itself in the middle of the night? I thought we had more or less determined this was a "feature" of ICS.

    Battery life is not so bad...I'm getting at least 2 days of life, pushing 3 days with the way I use the phone...limited calls and surfing during the week, more on the weekend. The phone is big enough as it is with the Otter box around it. IIRC, the extended battery is thicker which then means I have a heavier phone and a bigger profile. Probably not something that I really want!

    Not sure what to check, but you probably have some apps that are actively updating...I think there are settings to use WiFi or data for those updates. WiFi turning on should actually save data. I believe you want the mobile network on all the time. But check settings to be sure you're using the networks right.

    Yeah, I've never had it, even when I was stock...that's really odd...

    There is a setting under the WiFi that you should in check...its connect automatically to WiFi detected. I just clicked on the WiFi for the settings to appear. Maybe that will help.

    No one has mentioned Google Sync, usually set to every three hours, Automatic Updates, Google Location, turn them off and see if it helps,
    also weather updates are usually set to check every hour or so.
    Custom roms don't affect this, usually people install custom roms to get rid of the junk which is installed
    by their carriers, people brick their devices if they don't follow instructions.

    But custom ROMs are amazing.

    I have a Samsung galaxy s4 and it does the same thing, with one exception. My WIFI has been broken on my cell phone for over a year. However, periodically it turns itself on and I can use it. It's pretty creepy, if you ask me. Same with my bluetooth. If I attempted to turn either one on, it gives a faint green light and then cuts back off. Unless THEY want to turn it on. Then it's BRIGHT GREEN...anyone have this issue or answers?
