Default [Q] ATT Note3 stays awake while on 4g only

Basically as the title says, my note3 is constantly waking up while on 4g. it doesnt stay in a deep sleep. over the last few days i have done some experimenting erasing apps and turning them off and force stopping. i am pretty sure it is the android system itself not a app i have. i barely have any apps installed. i use maildroid, its setup to push and checks only every 6 hours. i use fleksy for a keyboard. and hoverchat for texting. using nova for a launcher, swipe up for swiping up. pretty simple and clean i keep all of the eye tracking nfc stuff like that off just using it as a simple powerful phone to browse the internet and text.

background. i had the kitkat leak that was posted here in jan i loved it becides everything would stop responding constantly. but the battery life was amazing. so i backtracked went to the 4.3 release then did the official update with the instructions on these boards. immediatly i noticed the battery life was less and the phone wasnt staying alseep so i started the troubleshooting. it has been over a week since the update too i know sometimes new roms take a few days to stablize. but it hasnt.

so what would cause a phone to be constantly being woken up while on 4g only? the pics i included show it. the first about half of the 4 hr 38 minute one part of data i am on 4g only. the long bar of being awake at the start and end of the 4g time is me playing music. the only screenshot the first 1/3 is on 4g only. no music only texting and internet didnt use it much today.

thanks for reading

Grab wakelock detector or Better Battery Stats and let it run for a few hours, then post the log if using BBS - and check the wakelocks, it's possible your signal is fluctuating too much and causing the device to constantly seek. But a wake lock monitor will pretty much tell you exactly what it is.

I was under the impression that wakening detection doesn't work with kit kat unless rooted? I use gsam battery app sometimes and it is basically the kernal it seems.

for most of my time with the phone I am in downtown of a major city with amazing 4g when it is doing it

Update
Tried a wipe reset and it worked great tested off and on WiFi. No drain at all when screen was off. Installed apps slowly and tested and all was good. Then I left the phone on the charger overnight woke up and it was back to the being awake often when on 4g only. I am stumped any new idea's?

Read up and figured out that its the customer. Xml file It is turned to on I tried editing it but cannot save it because it is protected file I guess. Any other way to save it?

Anyone know how to edit that customer. Xml file? Fast dormacy and the bam_dmux_wakelock seem to go hand in hand. Phone was all over the place today I have 47 minutes of that wakelock with about 6 hours of off WiFi time so it's a decent drain
