Default Why are Android OS and Android System draining my battery?

I've noticed this in the last couple of days that my battery is consumed very quickly by the Android OS and Android System processes. I cannot associate this battery drain to any new apps I might have installed.

Better battery stats has not helped much in identifying what the issue is and I regret paying for that app. This is very frustrating as my phone suddenly runs out of battery in about 10 hours instead of 14 to 15 hours.

If you suggest solutions, please don't suggest disabling or turning off any functionality. The point is to gain better battery, or to the level I used to have just a few days ago, without turning off things or installing other ROMs.
Device: Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 (international)
ROM: Criskelo 4.0.4 ICS ROM XXLRK v11.2
Modem: XXLRK

Install an app like "wakelock detector". It will tell you what is waking your system.
