I've done a little research and there is a bug in the 4.0.3 AOSP release. You can see a link to this issue here: http://code.google.com/p/android/iss...78#makechanges

Attached is a screenshot of the problem ocuring in ICS Passion 13.1

I am curious is anyone NOT having this issue?

Yeah, mine started couple of days ago with the same problem. Android System shows 75% battery usage.
I wonder if there is a fix for this bug. I read whatever is on the link but there is all king of possible solutions.

I think, 84% is the culprit. Read my post here --> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=2223

I used to have that issue on CM7 many moons ago. Did a bunch of searches and someone mentioned a process call GOOGLEBACKUPTRANSPORT.APK somewhere on XDA, that constantly runs even after you do not choose to backup to google (at least thats what I think its for).

I used root explorer to go into /system/apps and delete the GOOGLEBACKUPTRANSPORT.APK. I have never had any negative effect from doing it. It fixed the Android OS sucking up battery problem. Now I make it a point to delete it after flashing a rom regardless of whether batter drain is there or not. Never had that issue since.

Try it and see what happens. You can always just move it or rename it so you can put it back if it does not solve your problem.

I'm trying this now, I'll report back. Thanks

Just wondering if there have been any discoveries or new info on this problem.

I was experiencing this bug for a long time and I thought it was a bad battery. After replacing my battery it was still happening.

Battery life is the sole reason I went from ICS Passion (4.0.3) to Slim ICS (4.0.4).

I think battery life is better now, but I've also been incrementally restoring all my apps, ensuring battery drain isn't unreasonably affected with each restore.
