Angry How to kill media server battery drain

For the longest I've had this Media Server issue that would drain my battery by 35% or more and I think I may have figured out how to kill this S.O.B. Go to Settings>under account select Google>click on account> then where it says Google Play Music let it sync once then unselect it.. Haven't seen in since..

Update: Also received this from user: @xdafoundingmember seems to have killed it completely. Thank you sir https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...iaserverkiller

Default got it!!

OK, so mediaserver was killing my battery too. I did some digging with the digging being geared towards media and serving information. Turns out, for me anyway, that the Google play store was using twice the amount if background data as it was foreground data so, I checked the box to restrict background data and vioala!!!! Mediaserver went from using over forty percent to, now, 3 percent. I've been on battery all day from 8am, it's eleven now and I'm at 81 percent writing this.

DONATE TO ME
I had mediaserver killer set to kill on screen on and I had camera FC issues so I set it to intervals and now it's great. Just FYI for those who use it.
