I am running on android kit kat 4.4.2 (not rooted) Since last update Google play services keeps my phone awake even when phone is in sleep AND in safe mode. Like I said, I was using my phone in safe mode for twelve hours just to be sure that none of installed applications is not draining my battery. When I went to sleep last night battery was at 76% and after 6 hours battery was at 11%, when I checked battery history, wi-fi was off while phone is at sleep, "network signal" line was solid (as it suppose to be) and "keep awake" was solid blue also and it was running for 7 hours 16 minutes, straight (which is NOT suppose to be). And imagine my surprise when I saw GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES among running apps exact period of time!
It is obvious that Google play services drains battery. What can I do to prevent mentioned app to suck out life out of my battery and still to be able to use application that needs Google play services.
Thank you in advance.
I forgot to mention that I am dealing with this problem 15-20 days already and that I tried almost everything. Location is on gps only, wipe cash in recovery, remove battery, battery calibration, right now running in safe mode.........etc, etc, etc
