    Question How do I see which apps are keeping my phone awake when it is idle/not in use?

    Just curious because I see in the battery info that my phone is awake sometimes when it is idle/not in use and I just am wondering which apps are the cause of it. Thanks to anyone that can help!

    I use Gsam battery monitor from the play store. It goes more in depth than the standard battery stats screen does and can show you which specific app is sucking your battery and keeping the phone awake.

    There is no "battery usage" setting I'm aware of. Only the "battery" which does not give you many details. I have GSam Battery Monitor also though...

    Like zhara mentioned, download gsam battery monitor. Then once downloaded open the app and go to:
    1) App Sucker - Time Held Awake from dropdown (Take screenshot)
    2) App Sucker - Num Times waking Device (Take screenshot)
    Did I help you at all? Return the favor by giving me a "thanks"

    The info is in the same place. You just might have slightly different titles on your settings. You could always Google it.

    Probably, there is some app which is holding CPU wakelock Wakelocks

    You can check for "Wakelock detector" in Google Play
    It shows which app is using intensive wakelocks

    Wakelock Detector is the way to go. Media Scanner was keeping mine up due to corrupt MP3 file. Only problem I have now is that the deleted file will undelete itself every couple of days.
