I've disabled blinkfeed but I can still see it as a major power consumer in settings->power. How can I completely turn it off so that it doesn't drain battery?

I could be wrong but I'm fairly certain that HTC Blinkfeed is actually the launcher. So regardless if the homescreen widget is on or not, Blinkfeed is still running. Every time you navigate a screen or launch an app, it's going to show up as Blinkfeed in the app usage. There probably isn't much you can really do short of installing another launcher and seeing if it is a little better on the battery.
