Default [Q] Monitoring partial wakelocks without root?

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.

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.

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
