Hello, I know, on XDA is a lot of topics with this problem but I didn't find any solution there.

Some days ago I flashed my device to stock ROM 4.1.2 [XEO]. Of course, I made full wipe before flash and I didn't root my device.

I installed apps which I use and problem is here. I read, Viber is draining battery, so I went to settings of Viber and checked "Use System Sounds" and disabled vibrate when somebody sends me a message.

In android settings I disabled system sounds and vibrate too.

List of my apps:

Code:
AirDroid
Any.DO
Apex Launcher
BetterBatteryStats
Business Calendar
Cerberus
Dolphin Browser
Dropbox
Dropsync
EZ File Browser
Facebook
Feedly
Keep
Messenger (Facebook)
MX Player
PicsArt
SMS Backup & Restore
SoundHound
Swapps
Tapatalk
Tasker
Tinylight
Twitter
Viber
Waze
WeatherPro
WidgetLocker
Zooper Widget Pro
At night, tasker turns my device to airplane mode from 03:00 - 07:30.

Battery is really important for me so I will be really very thankful if somebody helps me to fix my problem with drain.

Thank you for your answer.

Tip 1:
- doesn't work for me. I wrote to CurrentWidget support. They tell me, problem is with Samsung devices (still shows 0mA)

Tip 2:
- have all disabled / enabled

So I found, I must close all aps before I lock my device or use Advanced Task Killer. I read a lot of articles and they don't recommend use 3rd task killers apps and auto-killing is bad for android. So I don't know what I can do now.

Bs. If you configure it to automatically kill all apps at screen off then nothing is gonna go wrong. I have set it up and everything is good here. Also use greenify to stop apps from running in the background that you don't want.

It is not Viber, despite what many people say on numerous threads.

I uninstalled Viber and the problem is still there.

To this day no one knows what the cause is. There have been many suggestions but no definite answer.

And to make it more difficult to solve, it looks like it's completely random.

I hate this kind of problems, the intermittent ones...

It is due to any app that uses audio. To shortlist it is generally in apps that use audio and continue running in background.
The only solution is to kill all apps before letting it sleep.

I can personally confirm that both Viber and Skype (when signed in) cause this wakelock. Also, this wakelock appears regardless of whether you turn off your screen. Play 15 minutes of audio with the screen on, you get this wakelock. Play a game, kill the process, you get this wakelock. It occurs even if you're using the phone, not only during screen off.

Edit: What I meant to say was, Viber and Skype cause this wakelock during screen off time.
