Ok so for about 3+weeks I've been having this issues. As the title states, this gplay has been running in the background for hours. Today it's been 8+hrs. Idk what it is. I googled, I disabled the background usage, turned off the data usage for it, put it to sleep, wiped data/cache, uninstalled updates, installed newer versions - all no dice. If anyone could point me in the right direction it'd be greatly appreciated.

    I didn't say I disabled the app, or even implied it, I said I disabled the background usage.
    It's junkware. Disable until you need it.
    You can firewall block it with Karma Firewall which will help a little but it will continue to use some resources. Karma Firewall uses almost no battery, freeware.

    Google play Services is another prime offender that I keep disabled unless I need it to get Gmail or use Gmaps.
    Disable Google backup transport and Firebase as well.

    Gookill sucks... with them you're not the customer, you are the product.
