Thumbs up
I'm still running on stock firmware and was affected dramatically by this bug. After upgrading to latest KF4 via KIES, this got even worse.

So I tried something. I disabled WLAN permanently (and only activate it if it is really needed) and removed my microSD card.

THAT did the trick! Don't know which one or if both help such a lot.

I had some mp3s for ring/sms tones on that card (in /media/notification) and Android silently moved apps to that SD (not the internal flash).

That means that Android somehow always needed to access the card (->Android OS), for playing tones (sms) or ringtones. Or even for loading icons in the menu from the SD.

When I removed the microSD card my battery lifetime instantly went up from 12-18h (Event / Suspend / Android OS Bug) to 3 days!

Doing this allowed me to get through the night with very little drain and the Android OS, etc. processes were finally behaving (within normal limits).

I'm not sure if anyone is reading this thread but I will continue to update until I figure out the solution, as I imagine this problem will become more noticeable to others who are equally frustrated with this issue.

Thanks continuing to post your progress as you worked through this problem even though no one was replying :P Definitely coming in handy right now- much appreciated!

When flashing new firmware, I always format system cache and Dalvik cache and clear battery stats. The extra minutes on the initial boot are more than made up for with fewer problems afterwards.

How do you get the nook cm7 to stop using the sd card? My nook is doing this, i would rather have it use internal memory.
