I'd been really wondering about this as well. I noticed your post in the main Rom thread about good battery life with many or most of the Samsung apps removed, did that affect how many Android System wake locks you've been getting as well? Do you have any of the system apps still running? I ask because I'd love to optimize my battery life, but there's still a few things I'd rather keep on it, as long as they're not the cause of some big issue that's preventing phone from sleeping or otherwise doing whatever it needs to to have such great battery life.

I'd also seem on another forum that for some, keeping all the apps and not even freezing any of them had actually turned out the best battery life overall, so that really had me puzzled. Thanks in advance for any advice you have.

Honestly I'm just as puzzled about it as you and everyone else is lol. Supposedly Android 4.4.3 (unreleased and unannounced) has fixed it.

Scroll to the right on the wakelock manager. If its alarmmanager it has to do with how android is managing schedules, it keeps the device awake so it can launch the task and wake the device http://developer.android.com/referen...rmManager.html there's more info on it. There are currently more effective ways to handle this and android has implemented this just need developers to change to the new methods
