Does anyone know of a way to monitor wakelocks without root? Some app or service on my phone is keeping it awake for hours at a time and I can't figure out what it is. It's slowly draining my battery and has become an annoyance.

I've used BetterBatteryStats in the past, but it requires root to list Wakelocks.

I really wish we could but without root I don't think its possible.

Eh, that's what I figured but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Getting hungry for root here...

Strangely enough, the wakelocks issue went away a day or so ago.

It may have been related to the Hangouts problem that has been happening recently, but I barely use the app.

According to their support docs, a lot of the options that I require regarding wakelook still require root.

Looks like we're just going to have to be patient.

This app caused me some issues. I was getting a lot of battery heat until I uninstalled it. I think apps like this conflict with Samsung's own power management.

The app does nothing to change the way the device runs; only reads stats from system
must be something else on your device

ymmv
