Post [Q] Google Search draining the battery

Before i go to sleep everyday, i plug my phone to the charger. When i woke up on saturday,the charger wasn't plugged and the battery was only 80%. I checked in the battery stats and there was google search draining the battery, running for about two hours. Wi-fi, gps and mobile off. I thought it was something related to the update on the touchless control, where you can search on google now without typing the pin. I disabled that option. Yesterday, i fully charged my phone before i get to sleep, and locked it on my closet. Today, i looked at it and there was only 20% left. Again, google search was running for almost 9 hours. Again, wi-fi, gps and mobile off. Anybody know why this is happening?

I did notice on my nexus 7 the other day Google Search on a different user sucked up about 50% of the battery in 12 hours, even after it was sitting around for a full day.
