I am rooted, I'm running mk2. Like I said, I use nova launcher, does that not stop touchwiz from running?

No...nova is just an overlay that makes things more user friendly...touchwiz is always running in the system and can't be removed without damaging stability...if Samsung would ship their devices with pure android from original source their devices might near perfection...but I have never used nova and don't know how it affects battery

Well I really appreciate all your help man. So do you recommend anything? Should I remove light manager?

You can try it...if it doesn't help and you like the app you can always reinstall...there are also a few decent battery life threads on xda here that may have answers that I don't...good luck

DONATE TO ME
I run Nova and it doesn't effect battery life at all for me. There are some really good wakelock detectors in the play store that are easier to use although better battery stats is good too. I'd try using greenify as well. It works great

Try using this wakelock app. Very easy to use.
