    What are you trying to do with the Google Device Manager? It appears to be a security feature (find phone, disable phone), and at least on my phone doesn't list a device.
    Right, but I would like to be able to use this feature if I lose my phone or it is stolen. On my computer it is saying no device so I cannot do things like find it, wipe it, etc.

    So it's Google as accessed through your computer that needs to recognize your phone. Have you selected Google Device Manager as the active device administrator in your phone's security settings (I know you said you went to security settings earlier, just want to make sure)?

    I've got Android Device Manager as the active device administrator in my security settings - what do I need to look at on my computer to see if I have a device listed (I know there are instructions for how to access this - I'll check when I get home tonight)? I can see if I have the same issue you do.

    Yea, I have Google device manager selected as the device administrator in my phone.

    Thanks for the link. I found it with a Google search a little while ago before dropping back in the forum, and found that it has both my old DINC2 and new Galaxy S4 listed as devices. I'm afraid that's about all I can contribute at this point. Perhaps your S4 needs to be re-registered with the site or with Google? I don't remember what I had to do, if anything, to get mine to show up there.

    Yea, you don't have to do anything which is why this is so perplexing. Oh well, maybe I'll do a factory reset if I really feel I need that. Thanks though.

    I have the same problem as the OP, but I'm using Qualcomm snapdragon BatteryGuru, and as a few versions ago, they now want access to Location Services -- for some stupid reason -- which seems to somehow turn on Google Services, which kills the battery. I cannot figure out the reason they thought that would be a good idea, the same thing with the broken wifi management, it is supposed to turn on the wifi for a couple minutes, then turn it off, but it stays on. If you hardly use wifi, why does the developer insist you use the management part of the app to save battery, when it doesn't.

    Having Wi-Fi on provides your phone with a faster and lower powered location approximation.

    FWIW, device manager is working again. I didn't do anything special, I just checked it today and my device was there.

    So I just cleared the cache and data for "Google Services Framework" and "Google Play Services" (I just looked for anything with Google and Services in the name). I then rebooted. It has only been 10 minutes but checking WLD after a few minutes shows my phone is now going into deep sleep (remember it was always "awake"). I'm already at 74% so I am gonna throw it on the charger and get it to 100% then see how it does today. I'll let y'all know.
    This fixed mine. I would only clear the cache and data for "Google Services Framework" though.

    What does Settings - More - Battery tell you is using up your battery?
