    Default Wakelock Detector for KitKat?

    I used to use Wakelock Detector before the update to KitKat to determine which apps and processes were keeping my phone awake when I was not using it. Since the update, Wakelock Detector no longer works. I checked the Wakelock Detector app on Google Playstore and it is apparently due to some changes in Google's permissions. Does anyone know of any other apps that serve the same purpose as Wakelock Detector and also work in KitKat? Any help would be much appreciated - thanks!

    All of those apps have similar issues, but GSAM battery monitor, when you tap on an app, will tell you how much time that app has kept the phone awake.

    It looks like Pro Stats only works with rooted phones. Are there any apps for unrooted phones?

    I think you mean Process Stats in the developer options.

    I have looked at Process Stats, but I haven't found where I can determine which apps are keeping my phone awake. Can someone help with that?

    On KitKat you cannot get the information you need without rooting the phone.

    Go through any apps that are updating in the background - Facebook, twitter, etc. Go into the settings and see what the update schedule is, and try changing it to something longer (or set it to manually update). If you have any on screen widgets, remove them. If you are not using touchless control, turn it off. The same thing goes for active notifications. If you don't use the Assist app drive or meeting modes, turn them off. If you have turned on Google Now and can live without out, turn it off, or at least go into settings / location, tap Google location reporting, and turn off location reporting and history for the phone.

    See if that makes things better.

    The real question is this: does your phone get you through a day without having to charge until you go to bed? If so, maybe stop sweating the details and just use the phone and don't worry about it.
