[Q] Constant wakelocks with GCM_CONN_ALARM and GCM_CONN (GcmService)

My phone (Moto G running stock Android 4.4.2 rooted) NEVER ever gets into deep sleep because of these two deadlocks: GCM_CONN_ALARM and GCM_CONN.

I tried blocking them using Wakelock Terminator (either in Google Play Services or in Android System) but it doesn't seem to do anything at all, either with the keyword filter or the total filter.

The wakelocks only stopped when I disabled GcmService (using the Disable Service app), but now I don't get many notifications (Gmail, Twitter, WhatsApp).

Is there any solution in between? Thanks in advance.

Why do you need to go in deep sleep you will miss notifications in deep sleep

Start uninstalling things like FB, whatsapp, viber, Twitter and so everything that may want to sync periodically.

See if you can filter out what is actually keeping the given service active, thus keeping your device awake.

As a last resort, factory reset and start over.

This popped up for me after using my alarm clock. Even after turning off the alarm, it still appears. Did you ever resolve the issue?

Use Greenify in Boost mode (works with xposed)
