I have noticed one of my biggest battery draining apps is the google dialer application.

For some reason it seems to keep the phone awake for hours on end, even when I do not spend very much time on the phone.

Stock, 4.4.3. rooted, thats it.

Any suggestions or ideas? I've tried clearing the dialer's cache and data, but it still keeps the device awake for no reason it seems.

Thanks in advance!

mmh I've never seen that problem.

You could first try clearing data and cache of the app. If that doesn't work, maybe flash the factory images? Just to be sure it's not something on your side.

Hope this helps.

Boot the phone into recovery and then wipe cache and dalvik cache, and then reboot the phone.

I think 4.4.4 addresses this issue, you should make a clean installation of the factory image (again) and see how it goes.

I flashed the 4.4.4 system and radio images.

Will report back. So far so good..... But I will confirm.

OK SO i think i MAY have figured out this bug.

I use the search function in the dialer app all the time for work. I call a lot of businesses in the area and i always use the dialer to look up their numbers. This is what I think causes the wakelock, as it triggers a search and looks up local businesses matching the number.

I've turned off this feature in the app, as well as the caller ID function and so far i am not having any issues. Will report back.

Just an update. I can trigger this bug in any ROM, including cyanogen mod and also paranoid android.

Here is the solution until Google offers a fix:



By leaving the above options unchecked, the wake lock will not trigger.
