Hi I have been using Google Play Music as my music player and I noticed that when playing music the phone never goes into deep sleep which causes my battery to drain quickly. I usually listen to offline music downloaded from Google Play. I have tried wiping and reflashing both stock and Paranoid Android Beta 4 and they both have the same problem so I was wondering if the Play Music app is supposed to be like this? Thanks!

It will stay awake but the CPU can go into low power operation. With the screen off, listening to MP3s with headphones plugged in should use minimal battery.
