    Looked at the resources used and it appears gmail is taking 40%, although I never use it...
    Is there any way to stop this from happening?

    Is it set up for an actual account? It's very strange that it would use any battery resources if it wasn't used. You could try going the app manager is settings - all apps and find the G-Mail app and disable it. I don't know how that may affect something else in the system as I haven't heard of that before.

    Uninstall and reinstall Gmail in your S3. It's really strange that any such thing is happening. I haven't heard that before or you can also chose to upgrade the software, as it might be a glitch.
