    I'm currently on 5.0.2 and after doing a full refresh and giving the phone a few days post-upgrade to settle down I'm getting absurd battery usage stats. Battery life itself is fine (after taming the runaway Google services), but at 50% battery the stats suggest my screen time is responsible for 3% (despite 4+ hours of SOT... hey, it's a Sony!), Android system 30% and K9 email for almost 30% (K9 kept the phone awake for less than 2 minutes, and Android System kept it awake for about 35 minutes). Those % figures are absurd and I now use GSam to see what's really happening. Needless to say, it gives far more believable stats.

    I have no rogue wake locks, I use Greenify to kill errant apps when not using them, wif-fi turns off when screen is off, and my wireless signal is green 90% of the time. Anyone experiencing the same, or know what's going on?

    It's possible that one of your data files either got corrupt or is different after the update - which is why it's suggested that you do a backup, factory reset and restore after an update.

    I did that already -- updated from 4.4.4 to 5.0.2, rebooted, then immediately did a full reset/restore that wiped all data. I really don't want to spend hours doing that again unless I know it will solve this (and other) problems.

    And on 4.4.2 K9 didn't cause you any issues?
