this answer is crap...

Try to flash the new firmware with repartition and the right pitfile. That will do a full wipe and a clean install. I have had the same issues, tried a lot of things and nothing was helping me... This solution works for me and Knox wouldn't trip!

best regards

Flashing any official firmware - so long as it's same as you have got or an upgrade - won't trip KNOX. - If you try to downgrade to different versions you encounter KNOX issues.

You can not downgrade!

Try to see what is holding wakelocks - possibly stuff like the indexer/finder service that is "kept in a loop" by certain files (for instance unusual PDFs or video/audio).

Also see if you can disable some of the things going on the network in the background.
