From what I understand media server does a couple things, it scans for media files to index. meaning everytime you mount your sdcard it gets scanned any media files it finds it indexes or catalogs the file into a media library , kind of like caching the file. it also is the go between the file and the player so it is used whenever you use a music player or whenever the system needs a sound like a alarm notification or when you receive a text message media server retrieves and delivers the chime. There are cases when media server goes crazy trying to index a corrupt file and you will see it shoot up towards 30 or 40% when not even playing music or anything . But this doesn't sound like that case. Also media server did not use 18% of your battery. it is just the percentage of the used battery. So lets say your your battery is 50% and media server used 18%. this does not mean that out of the 100% , 18% was media server. It means that out of the 50% , 18% of that was media server. So that means it only took up 9% out of the total 100% of the battery. I hope that makes sense.

I don't have any music on my phone. I stream everything from either slacker or play music. Is this problem an sd card issue?

did you upload music to play music? the music you uploaded could be corrupted. google music will download the file.

try clearing data/cache for play music and give it a day or 2 to see it it drains again.
