    Ever since the update, when my phone is charging, the battery stats say the phone is awake the entire time. GSam shows a couple things keeping it awake. I'm wondering if this is something I need to be concerned about, or if I'm just a worry-wort

    You Google those items? It would seem you have Bluetooth on?

    Bluetooth will impact your battery. Try pulling the battery for 5 minutes and see if you get better results.

    Ugh, a battery pull is not possible with a droid Maxx. However, you can boot into stock recovery and clear the cache. If your rooted, then you can also clear the dalvik cache, with the help of some apps.

    Bluetooth is always enabled. My issue is why the phone says it is awake while CHARGING.

    Did you unknowingly check the box next to stay awake while charging? It's found in the developer options menu.

    I can confirm that my phone does the same. I don't recall if it did so prior to the update - but the fact that it stays awake makes sense. The phone's charging circuitry needs to shut down when the charge hits about 90% or so in order to prevent the battery pack from overheating as it nears full-charge, so the phone is probably kept awake to make sure that this is given priority.

    I think it's always done this. Look at this review from here of the Maxx when it came out: Quick Review: Motorola DROID MAXX | Droid Life

    There are some photos of the battery page. Unfortunately, it cut off the charging line, but if you look at the first the battery stats page, you can see that the phone was charging at various points by the blue line under the graph, which coincides with when the battery graph ticked up, and you'll see that the phone was awake then - and this was back with JB.

    I definitely wouldn't worry about it. I only worry about constant awake when I'm on battery, not when I'm charging.

    I've never seen it say it's awake while charging before this update. I just got concerned

    Understandable. I don't have a Maxx but have had numerous phones and can't recall any of them staying awake while charging. doogald does make a good point and this may be the way it is for the Maxx.

    If I recall correctly, back when I had my OG Droid (2010), Motorola phones HAD to be awake when you charged them. If I had turned my phone off and decided to charge it say 10 minutes later, the act of plugging the charging cable into the phone woke it up, and it stayed awake during the charge and as long afterwords as I let it sit. If I obsessed about that (which I usually didn't) I'd let it charge, then remove the cable and turn it off.

    So should I install or should I wait to accept update? I don't want a phone with no WiFi. Is everyone seeing this issue or is it spotty?
