    I'm suddenly seeing the process "audioserver" at the top of the battery usage list. It says that since my last full charger ~23 hours ago, it has used the CPU for 6h 37m 28s and has 14h 54m 5s stay awake time.

    The only program that I installed recently was Google Voice, which I uninstalled after seeing this problem, but the problem did not go away.

    I read elsewhere to disable "AudioConnectionService" but that made no difference.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does this persist after a reboot? If so, then I wonder if it's similar to Mediaserver issues that are related to a corrupt media file somewhere. You may want to try backing up any music files saved locally on the phone, and then deleting them all.

    It did persist after a few reboots in the last few days.
    I do not have any music files on the device
    The only media on the device is a couple of short videos that I recorded with the camera app.

    I've deleted the cache partition this afternoon. I'll update tomorrow whether or not that stopped the problem.

    Ok, try also backing up those videos somewhere and then deleting them from the phone, in case one of the files got corrupted.

    I figured it out:
    I had installed Rayman Fiesta Run and Rayman Jungle Run on my phone a while ago. Recently, after finishing Jungle Run, I moved on to Fiesta.

    Jungle Run was well behaved and only drained battery when in use.
    Fiesta, on the other hand, spawned the audioserver process in the background, and a bug was causing the battery to drop off like I had been seeing. The only way to stop it was to force close the program.

    I uninstalled Fiesta Run, and the problem has gone away.
