I would still like to see a factory battery stat shot.

I have noticed that my Phone app has been doing something, although I have yet to use it on this charge. And I just switched over from global to LTE too. Also, I disabled Google Now and Motorola Processes (not sure what those do, but it looked like it could be a problem) and now my keep awake time under Kernel is completely gone. The keep awake time under phone is up to 30+ minutes already though.
The kernel (OS) runs all the time. Its job is to monitor and manage every other thing that runs on the phone. It runs in the background. It processes all input, output, system resource requests from applications, it manages all of the hardware (sensors, memory, radio, screen, GPS, etc.). In short, it does everything all the time. If you stop every other application and service on your phone, 100% of your battery usage would be used by the kernel. If you run a bunch of apps, the amount of battery used by OS will go down because you are looking at a percentage. The OS will still be doing the same amount of work, but other apps will be doing more than they are now. As the percentage of battery used by the apps goes up, the percentage used by the OS will go down.

Excellent explanation for the OS usage! You are going to have some keep awake time - any streaming apps you use, etc will keep the phone awake. Awake 1 hour out of 10 sure isn't excessive. With the global changed you may find that your battery is heading back towards the good side. You are definitely making progress!
I am really curious why JB changes it to global from LTE. Mine was changed at first too and I know I did not change that.
Thanks, I just thought it was strange for the Kernal to be running so high overnight. I checked it as soon as I got up this morning and that is the percentage it was running at. But thanks again for the posts, always know I can count on the members here for advice or feedback!!!
