As the title implies, Google Search has been accounting for about, 19% of battery usage. I have cleared data and cache. App can be stopped, but it restarts. I see no option to disable. Phone is stock and unrooted. Any ideas?

Best way to rid yourself of battery robbers is root it (if you dont mind loosing warranty) and use titanium backup to freeze it...(and others) along with greenify and wake lock detector to find other stuff that keeps the phone awake.....

Thanks, guys. I agree the only real solution would be to root. I'll probably be upgrading before too long anyway.
