Default [Q] Kernel (Android OS) sucking my battery !! Can Anyone help ??

I have GSam battery monitor installed on my Note 3 (SM-900) running stock JB 4.3 (MK1) ....

Since a last few days I have witnessed battery drain on my phone without any apparent reason....I charge my phone to 100% at night (wifi & 3G data is off at night) & when I wake up after about 8 to 9 hours of sleep I find that the battery is down to 85% !!! Strange isn't it ...

GSam battery monitor says that nearly 67% of battery is used by "App Usage" , on clicking App Usage for bifurcation of battery usage I find that nearly 50% of my battery is used up by "Kernel (Android OS)"......How to control this , any help will be appreciated dear forum friends !!

Do you have Google Now turned on? If so try turning off location reporting in Google maps and see if it helps, it's made a huge difference on mine.

Turning the location off helps. The GPS kills the battery.
