    Not sure why the media is running. Its bringing the battery up over 102.5°F.

    Media is a thorn in many people's sides with this update. Lots of posts on it in the Jelly Bean and Battery Life thread.

    The last time mine ran the battery temp up was over the last weekend when it hit 111 degrees. The battery was dropping like a rock and the phone was too hot to touch. It was suggested that I download Android Assistant and go into Tools, Battery to see what was sapping it. In this case, Gmail had gone berserk and once I force stopped that, deleted all the messages on the computer then told the phone to re-sync it stopped. I do not have auto-sync turned on for anything at all so apparently I told it to sync at some point. But that app showed Gmail at some outrageous percent. Usually my battery does not get hot - just media and wake locks drive me up the wall.

    For some reason, a tweak I made yesterday to an app seems to have corrected my wakelock issues. Kernal is back up to nearly 60%. I seem to be making some progress. Don't want to jinx myself.

    Media is the media server scanning for pictures, music, ringtone and so on. A good place to start to try and fix this is your external sd card. Move things like pictures to a folder on your pc. And format the sd card. An fdr is not a bad idea either. There are old files on your internal memory that media searches through that keeps your phone awake, such as thumbnails and cache from wallpaper apps.

    I cleaned out my entire phone this past weekend and I am getting awesome battery life now. Media is no longer a problem.

    Also if you download the RAZR utility for jelly bean you can re install after you clean out your phone. There is a thread for it under Droid RAZR hacks.

    If you delete something you shouldn't have you can run that and get it back.

    I think I will try formatting the SD card. Hopefully that will stop it. Thanks for the suggestion!!

    Soo now I have another question lol. System (wake lock) i.e. mediaserver has kept the phone awake for 3 hours out of 11. But media is at 0.0% per GSam. System wake lock is at 8%. If media is at 0 does that not mean that it isn't searching for anything? If yes, why the wake locks? I am starting to sound like Edith Bunker.

    Can you post a screen shot of the stock battery stats and one of gram. Media wakes your device at least it did on mine it was keeping my device awake constantly.
    Have you done a fdr yet?

    I would definitely say it's your media keeping your phone awake. It looks just like mine did last week.

    If you formatted your sd card I would charge it to full and see if that helped, but if it didn't I would do an fdr.

    If an fdr doesn't work. Plug your phone into your pc and check through all the files on your internal memory. I found that after 3 fdrs I still had old app files with thumbnails and cache that didn't clear out. Maybe it's just my phone but I thought an fdr was supposed to clean that stuff out.

    That is what I thought too. If I move my SD card contents to the PC and format the card, won't there still be a chance of something corrupted going back on the card? I did delete two old apk files from the internal storage when I read your previous post. I too thought an FDR cleaned that out - supposed to take it back to out of the box state.

    There is a difference between mediaserver & media, at least on my phone.
    For me, Mediaserver does a wakelock, while I use IHeart Radio.
    Media, on the other hand seems to do be using a small amount of time and wakelocks on mine, and it shows up even when the phone has just sat idle.
    Media, might be what avenged is referring to that is scanning for media...

    TriciaH, I am shocked by the top line in your GSam pic. System shows over 4hrs of wakelock???
    Mine shows .1% for that line item.
    What is puzzling me is, in the systems battery stats, it shows Mediaserver running a wakelock for 2.5 hrs while I had IHeart Radio playing, but in GSam, it shows System (wakelock) for like 52 seconds, and when that line item is opened, it says included process is "mediaserver"

    My phone was giving me the same stats and it drove me crazy figuring it out. The media server keeps your device awake because it's searching through pictures and music and if it gets to a bad file it goes into a loop and keeps running. That's why I had to clean my internal and external memory to try and get rid of all of the junk files that didn't belong.

    They must have super charged the media server on jelly bean because there are all kinds of people with this problem now.

    Only put files back on your sd card that you want to keep if you didn't put it there than its probably a good idea to get rid of it and just start fresh.

    Moving the files off the SD card as we speak. Will format it and just put a few that I need back on. See what happens. Mine is not media that is keeping it up - its mediaserver and I thought they were two separate things. My wakelock has been more than that. I find that disabling background data at work keeps it down some. It has been awake 9 hours out of 10 before. Never did that before this crap update. Even on the Christmas Miracle it never did this. They did something to it and its not playing nice with others.

    SD card emptied and formatted. BAck in the phone. I put exactly six contact photos back on it. Am going to see what happens. Mediaserver was at 5 hr 19 minutes when we pulled the card. I looked just now - it is at 5 hours 19 minutes and down to 4% of the useage. I really REALLY hope this was the problem! Man I would be SO happy! I have no photos anywhere on the internal storage. All the folders say "this folder is empty" when I tap them.
