Something is causing my S4 CPU to be running 24/7 and killing battery

For the past few days I've noticed my S4 randomly go from 80% battery to completely dead while just in my pocket... when I take the phone out, I notice that it is running very hot. I also keep getting notifications that my memory is completely full (I have 16gb + 32gb sd card).

This is a screenshot of what is causing the cpu to be running. 'Media' caused 80% of my battery to be depleted. Also, the battery decline seems to be a steady slope.

Is there any way to figure out what is causing this and how to stop it? Thanks!

Install wakelock detector. Charge to 100% and let it drain. Then check wakelock detector PRIOR to re-charging. THis will tell you exactly what is keeping the unit from hibernating properly. Poor case design can cause overheating as well. My i377m gets quite warm charging with the case on, so I just take it off. BetterBatteryStats also works.
