    I actually reformatted my 64gb card through my phone. I used my old 32gb SD card from my old Epic 4G to upgrade to JB since thats formatted in fat32. My Epic is rooted with CM9.

    I did all this stuff on my S3 and Hard Reset afterwards and still a battery hog. The only thing that makes my battery last anywhere near what it did on ICS is turning OFF Google Now. Today I did nothing on my phone seens how I was out on a job out off office. I sent about a dozen texts and a few pics and that was all. No WiFi all day, just got home.

    Here is where I am at...

    Goo to maps settings
    Turn off auto reporting.

    I had this issue, and not having the SD card in at all solves my problem. The instant I install Google Music and play any MP3s, Media or Media Server because a huge pig. The files are stored on internal, and nothing on my SD card

    I have a feeling it's a corrupt MP3 file.

    I ran into Media Server running nonstop, killing my battery life. I did a quick search and ran across something that mentioned Google Now is a pig. You can shut it off when not using it by going into Google Now>Settings>set slider to off. I installed it a couple days ago and my battery was getting sucked dry pretty quick in half a day. I will turn it on when I need to see traffic levels on my to/from work.

    Nice avatar. Been a fan since I&W.

    There an app you can use if you're rooted called "Kill Media Server". Just Google "kill media server apk" and install the it. Run it every time you boot your phone.

    Right on mikejwf...been a fan right around that time as well.

    As for media server....my battery life improved a little bit, but Media Server is still running more than it should. This has occurred after I did a factory reset so I'm not sure what is causing it to go nuts all of a sudden. Guess I'll try removing my sdcard...which should have absolutely zero bearing on anything.

    If you have a weak connection on 3g it can be the biggest drain of all and be completely normal. What I mean is that it's perfectly normal to have extreme battery drain on a poor connection.

    Id like to add a follow up to my battery drain issue.
    Before the update i had an app called Network Signal Info.
    It had a 2x1 widget that would tel me info about my network.
    Turns out prior to JB update the widget had very little battery drain. After the update significant drain.
    I accidently found this out when i put my device into airplane mode. That aparently deactivates the widget.
    Well while i was using my EVO LTE i did some playing around. My device with the widget was at 7-10% CPU usage constantly when the unit was in stand by mode. Removed the widget and its back to its normal 3% CPU Usage..
    I used SystemPanel Pro to determine my CPU usage.
    Using SystemPanel i still see CPU at about 50-75% usage for a time of 30-45 minutes on every start up.
    This is also about the same amount of time that Media uses when i check it under Battery. Once that stops it goes right back into a low CPU usage in stand by..

    SOOO if anybody is using Network Signal Info as a widget on their GS3 and noticing battery drain. Remove the widget and test it for a few days..

    Well...yesterday or the day before, the drain via Media Server finally ceased. I also unchecked the location awareness setting in Maps...which somehow had become checked. Anyways...I went about 13 hours and only lost 11% battery charge...which was exactly what I was getting before my factory reset. I never removed the sdcard at all...just kept everything the same. Maybe it took a week or so to go through my sdcard (only has a few oddball apks that I sideload, some camera pictures, and my custom ringtone/notification sound folder structure with about ten MP3s) and finish indexing those items or something.

    I'm using about 1Gb of the 32gb card thus far. I remember reading a few days ago on XDA that the process is normal and will clean itself up on its own. One thing to alleviate additional scanning time is getting excess Nandroid backups off the "sdcard" or "extSdcard". Typically those backups contain a ton of files and that was mentioned to increase the time that the process took to index all the files.
