    Wifi is at the top of the battery drainage and the report of the battery usage also shows wifi on all the time even when it was off plus there is real battery drainage

    I haven't experienced this bug but it seems related to the Location services. This process worked for several people having the same issue.

    - Go to settings - location - three dots top right - scanning - uncheck WiFi and Bluetooth.

    - Settings - backup & reset - network settings reset - reset settings.

    - Reboot your phone for the changes to apply. You need to check if the problem persists after a full charge.

    - If it doesn't work try wiping the cache partition on recovery.

    Do you mean that the WiFi bar is solid even when you're not using it? Do you keep the WiFi radio on even when there's not network available?

    By the way, did you manage to stop the battery drain?

    I had this problem after updating my Nexus 7 to Marshmallow - lost full charge overnight . Tried the location services change and it made no difference, tried clearing the cache made no difference. I then reset the Nexus and set it up again. I've had no problems since and am getting the full benefit of the Doze feature. I use the Nexus in bed, rest of the time it sits on the bedside cabinet. I now go days between charges.

    I did everything posted above except for resetting network settings and it stopped. Finally I have the battery life I was expecting on this phone.

    I did a factory reset after update and then got the Wifi battery drain.

    Turned location to GPS only, turned off Bluetooth and Wifi scanning and rebooted.

    Seems the 6.0.1 update fixed WiFi battery drain or most likely incorrect report on battery usage. Now WiFi is not on top of the list.

    I did everything suggested above, updated to 6.0.1 and I still have battery drain from wifi. It seems that I'm using much more battery than I should be with apps like WhatsApp and Messenger. My battery was full when I woke up, wifi turned off, light usage on 4g (1h18 sot) and my wifi bar is solid, now I have only 65% left. This issue will drive me crazy soon

    Factory reset solved everything here. It was a first factory reset here from 5.1.1 WiFi always on, everything in networking and position at factory settings. Android 6.0.1

    It seems like a random thing... In my case I got the 6.0.1 update, and the wifi drain started after a factory reset a week ago, because Skype was DEVOURING my battery (litteraly, like 30% and I was not even logged in!!).

    Now, I did all this, but my wifi is still top of the list and the usage bar shows continuous activity:

    1) Turn Wi-fi off when I'm not at home (duh...)
    2) Settings > Wi-fi > ... > advanced > Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep > only when connected
    3) Settings > Location > ... > Look for wi-fi networks (or something like that) > off

    I'll perform a new factory reset and see what happens...

    So a few apps don't like having location for GPS only. Can't believe this bug isn't fixed yet. Time to look for a custom rom I think.
