Default Excessive Battery Drain on Airplane Mode

My Infuse 4G is always on Airplane Mode with Wifi turned on. I use it as a secondary device and like an iPod Touch/Media Player. However, even if Airplane Mode is on, the number one drainer of battery is Cell Standby at like 60-70%. Also, the phone never enters deep sleep and Android OS constantly keeps the device awake. As a result, from a 100%, the phone is dead within 8 hours. There has got to be some sort of fix for this. I'm running the latest Beanstalk 4.4.285.


P.S. I have entered AppOpps and denied the permissions to wake up and stay awake to the following apps: Google Search, Google Play Services and Android System.
Devices:

LG Nexus 5
ROM: SlimKat with Franco Kernel
Asus Nexus 7
ROM: SlimKat with ElementalX
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 SGH-I317 (using on T-Mobile)
ROM: W03 Slim V21
Samsung Infuse 4G
ROM: CarbonROM
Apple iPad 4
Pebble Smartwatch

Past Devices:

Asus Transformer Pad TF300 - Sold
Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 - Sold[/HIDE]

Try rebooting. A custom launcher may be a culprit! Apex Nova Go are reliable! Do a clean flash again!
There must be an app which is running in background! Try deleting a recently installed app, try clearing cache of google+. Try uninstalling anti viruses which are useless in a phone. Install an app called Greenify in Play Store. Greenify most of your installed apps with it. It really boost battery life.
Change governor in performance to either Interactive or OnDemand.
My gratitude to Scott.hart.bti for his continuous support for the old Infuse 4g.My thanks to Enthropy for stable cm9,gtg,Andros,qkster and xda members for their tricks to use technology more efficiently

And if you want, go into phone info (by dialing *#*#4636*#*#) scroll down to the button that says turn radio off, and that keeps the cell radio off.

Sorry for the super late reply. I use Nova Launcher and I have greenified a ton of apps and Google services. Also, switching to CarbonROM helps. However, my phone NEVER goes into Deep Sleep. In Trickster Mod, Deep Sleep is one of UNUSED states. What is causing this? I also have airplane mode enabled and WiFi running.

Some apps are not properly closed out when you exited it. I had to force close some of them. Not sure if this is happening with other people. Go into: Settings > Applications > Manage applications or Running services open apps that you recently open/closed. If Force stop light up it mean the app still running. I'm aware that some apps remain running due to user setup for it to check for update. The app I'm referring to shouldn't since update is turned off or in manual update mode.
