I updated to lollipop last night. Today took phone off charger at 7am... Currently "Guest User" is sitting a top the list at 6% battery usage with 44min of CPU time and 5h keeping awake... This doesn't seem right...
I went into guest user last night for roughly 30 seconds just to see what it does.. Haven't switched to guest user since.

First, that's not 6% of the battery capacity, it's 6% of the amount of battery used - which could be 1% of battery capacity. (Which would make it .16% of the battery capacity.) Second, post a screenshot of the second page of the battery stats (go to Battery, then press the graph.) The Awake line will tell all. If it's awake too much, you can use Wakelock Detector (see Wakelock with non-rooted KitKat) to see what's keeping it awake and Greenify to stop it.

I unfortunately don't know how to read this page. And I know its the percentage of what's been used.. So it was 6% of the 50% used at the time of the screen shot...

Now it's 10% of the 70% gone...

But I'm not using the guest user.. Doesn't seem like it should be so high.

I powered off and back on... It is now labeled "removed user"... And appears to not be increasing the stats... Hmm

Just an update.. But the guest user hasn't shown up again.. So that's good.. But not sure why throughout the day when I used guest user for 30 seconds, it continued to use CPU and keep the phone awake the rest of the day, or until I restarted my phone.

Did you start up any apps using the "guest" account, or install any widgets on its desktop, or anything like that?

No I didn't.. I turned it on.. And looked at it.. That was it.. Didn't open anything or change anything while in the guest mode.
