Lately I've been finding it generally taking a lot longer to charge my phone. I usually charge it at night while I sleep, but a couple of nights ago I just left it unplugged. I don't remember what level the battery was. By morning, the battery was completely dead. I had to plug it in for a while before I could even turn it on. This is NOT normal. Even if the battery were already low, it would still last the night on standby. It'd just be a bit lower the next morning.
I tried this again last night, but this time I noticed the battery level was 80... plenty to last all night. When I woke up, same thing. Dead.
I checked the battery usage in Settings, but it doesn't seem to give very much useful information. However, I noticed that the item "Media" has the highest battery usage by a big margin (not counting the display, which is NOT what's killing my battery here, since it remains off at night).
^here's the Media details for battery usage. The first time I checked it, it was actually around 77%.
Can someone help explain what this screen tells me? Why is Keep Awake more time than CPU total?
Also, if one or more of the Included packages is causing the battery to deplete so fast, I can freeze it, but I don't know which ones are safe to freeze.
Unfortunately I never really looked at the battery usage before having this issue, so I'm not sure if this Media entry is normal. It might be something else. Whatever it is, it's quite troublesome.
I have a scheduled reboot to occur around 2am while I'm sleeping, so if anything is left running on the phone when I go to bed, it shouldn't be running all night. That is, unless it's something that starts up when the phone boots. There are also battery saving Smart Actions and stuff that run while the phone is idle at night. I disabled these in the meantime so I can see if there is any change by morning. In the meantime, I'm hoping someone can let me know if I can safely freeze any of those packages without effecting my use of the phone. As a note, I use 3rd party apps for music, gallery, etc.
