Hasn't happened since on either device after I stopped running Chrome (still installed though).
Hmmm, that's odd. I've been using chrome with no sync for 2 days and haven't had the dreaded wakelock. 30 minutes ago I signed in to chrome sync and currently have had the suspend_backoff wakelock for 26 minutes. As soon as I sign out of chrome sync and reboot the phone, no more wakelock.

I can confirm this problem and thank this topic for the solution. Turned off internet synch under Google account and my battery was stable again for the last 2 hours.

And for the lazy users:

All,
I found that using Chrome for Android would, at times, drain my battery in the background substantially, to the point where it would be the first or second highest "reason" listed for battery drain, even when I hadn't opened the app all day.

Thanks to Badass Battery Monitor, I found that Chrome was using the Gyroscope in the background. This doesn't make any sense, so I assume it's a bug.

Here are the steps I used to resolve it:

1. Open up Chrome
2. Go to Settings
3. Select "Developer tools"
4. Uncheck "Enable Tilt Scrolling"
5. Reboot the phone

This seems to have resolved all battery draining issues I had with Chrome. I just wanted to post about it in case anyone else is having the issue, and so that Google is aware there is an issue and can resolve it in the future release.

Looks like this fixed it for me. I remember reading about that way back when chrome first came to android. Wish I would've remembered it sooner. I can finally go back to using chrome w/ sync again.

Thanks.

After having a slew of battery draining problems for months, I fixed it and was able to run almost 2 days on a single charge...then all of a sudden recently I started noticing it was draining after 1 day. Didn't realize Chrome was doing this, but did see that suspended_backoff was the culprit. Thanks for the advice.

this is why i love xda. quick google search pointed me in the right direction. My AT&T SGS3 was doing the exact same thing, I just disabled that tilt crap hopefully tomorrow chrome won't eat 30% of my battery life. Been doing this for the last few days.

So it's confirmed that it's enough to disable tilt scrolling or do I still need to disable chrome sync to solve the suspend backoff wakelock issue?

Going to try just by disabling tilt scrolling which I don't need and see if the wakelock gets solved with sync enabled.

Disabling tilt in chrome did not solve my issue.Totally uninstalling chrome did.
Also,same issue appears with firefox sync.

So now i'm on stock browser,no wakelocks whatsoever.
