    Like many people here, my battery life isn't near what it used to be. I can still get through the day, but I'm concerned at the rapid decline in battery life since my upgrade isn't until August.

    I've already done the system cache wipe and eliminated some apps I don't really use anymore. I don't know why any of my current apps would be draining the battery. None of them give me push notifications and noone are supposed to check for anything more than once an hour.

    If you look at my screenshots, you see that nothing seems out of the ordinary in terms of what is using the battery. Screen is the biggest hog as expected. The problem is found in the other screenshot. I want to know what would have kept the phone awake for so long at the beginning of the time period when the screen wasn't on.

    What is the best way to find out what is keeping the phone awake? I've tried some apps before but they seemed to require too much technical knowledge that I don't care to learn. If I have to I will, but I'd prefer something easy.

    The best is Wakelock Detector. If the phone isn't rooted, read Wakelock detector with non-rooted phone. (It's a pain, but it works.)

    Expect your email app and your text app and others that keep looking to see if they're needed to keep waking the phone for a second here and there - which can result in a few hundred wakelocks. (Push Service has awakened my phone 628 times since it was charged about 45 hours ago, for a total of 46 seconds. That's normal.)

    BTW, if you have a solid wifi signal, you can turn off mobile data - you don't need them both connecting to the internet. (Only 1 will, anyway.)
