Default [SOLVED] Extreme Battery Drain after Update

After the 10.4.1.B.0.101 firmware update my battery has been draining extremely quickly. Today it went from 100% to 25% in 6 hours with the device in airplane mode. When I look at the battery usage in Settings it says that Google Play Services used 63% of the battery. I Googled this and I saw that there was an battery drain issue with Play Services that was fixed with ver 4.1. Well, I have ver 4.2. The other high item in battery usage is labeled Media using 27%. I did not use the phone for anything, it sat idle in airplane mode.

I'm also getting random vibrations. Sometimes when I'm holding the phone it will give a quick vibration notification. I don't know where that is coming from.

I initially did the OTA with the device rooted that resulted in some severe problems. So, I unrooted and reflashed it with SEUSS. So, that should have totally wiped the device and put a fresh image on it. I have no other problems other than this extreme battery drain.

Anybody have any clues? Anybody else seeing this?

Install better battery stats and look at what's consuming your battery?

I used my phone pretty heavily today and still have 11% left... I plugged it in about 2 hours ago long enough to grab some pictures off of it...

I'm unsure why Google services went nuts... oh and I had my screen on full brightness for an hour or more while working on a project outdoors in bright sunlight...Click image for larger version

Huh this is not a battery drain issue.

Wipe the batterystats.bin and charge again to 100% without disconnecting the phone. Use it and voilà. (You can use Battery Calibration from NéMa in the Play store)

This will calibrate your battery. I suggest you do it after ant ROM flash or OTA update.

Root required to wipe stats.

Wow, I thought I had this problem licked but it resurfaced again today. Since my first complaint I factory reset the phone and reinstalled everything again. I have been running fine for days since then. But, then today.... same problems. With the phone in airplane mode most of the time I get the following:

I think I figured out the problem. I have a 64GB Micro SD that I had pretty full with music. I've used it without problems for at least 6 months in my Xperia before the update. After the update I noticed an extreme battery drain and it reported that "Media" was using an unusually high amount of resources. So, I removed the card and now I get phenomenal battery life using Stamina. If I don't actively use the device it will only drain less than 1%/hour. Not bad under heavy use also.

I've been out of town since all this started and I haven't had a chance to reformat my MicroSD. I am hoping that if I reformat and slowly add back in some media that it might not reoccur.

I disabled Google crap (plus, maps, play services, magazines, books, movie studio, sync adapters for contacts, calendar, Chrome browser etc). Both me and my wife get approx 5 hrs of screen time (1day + from 100% to 15%) with moderate usage, (WiFi always on, 3g/WCDMA preferred, no sync). It's Google services that run in the background, cause wakelocks and drain battery.
