yesterday went to sleep with around 23% battery, turned wifi off, mobile data off, and when i woke up this morning, well, my phone was completely discharged, first time that happens to me, normally it would spend 2 or 3 % overnight, the other strange thing is that there were no wakelocks, but it seems that greenify drained my battery!

It happens. Sometimes apps meant to increase battery life do the opposite.

My guess is you greenified something you should not have and turning off WiFi and data made it go nuts.

First.... Check what your greenified apps are. If they aren't known battery hog apps, you probably shouldn't be greenifying them.

Second.... No need to turn off data or WiFi. WiFi on automatically firms off data, for starters.... And you should get good standby with WiFi on anyway.

See your graph.... As soon as you turned those off, your phone was held awake. Something really needed a connection, couldn't get it and kept your phone awake all night.

And in my opinion...the Turn off WiFi when screen is off option is not battery friendly either. That cause your phone to have to connect every time you turn on the screen. It does more harm than good. My WiFi is on 24/7 and I get 0.5 or less standby drain per hour.

Also, Greenify is not a battery drainer normally. But greenifying the wrong apps can certainly be.
