Thumbs down [Q] EXTREME battery drain while idle

I recently installed CM11 on my S3 with tmobile and the battery drainage is terrible. Ive searched other threads and the rate that others drain is miniscule compared to mine

I charged last night and went to sleep with my phone at 100%, when I woke up it was off, when turned on, 2%

Below attached is the screenshot of battery usage

I had Juice defender on, i set everything off (i think)

wifi was off, location/gps was off

I even turned off the blinking indicator light

20% an hour while idle means i'm obviously missing something here, please help? I don't know what the bars in the image mean but i was pretty sure i turned both those off

What can I do to fix this?

Go to Wi-Fi - advanced-untick always scanning
As for GPS some app might be using it...
For battery Install better battery stats and give it root permission and let it stand for 4-5 hours... And see what's causing your battery to drain...
