Samsung S4 - always stays AWAKE

Dear all,

Since last few days, I am facing a unique problem, my samsung galaxy S4 is always awake, even during night, when it is kept idle, causing to btaeery drain over 50% during night. Some pics are attached.

Has anybody faced similar situation. If you have any solution.. please help..

Re: Samsung S4 - always stays AWAKE

Get rid of that Pokemon GO thing as a first step - It's known to trash battery life.

If that doesn't work you can still take comfort in the knowledge that you've rejoined the human race, and are no longer an accident statistic waiting to happen.

Re: Samsung S4 - always stays AWAKE

You've probably got an app running, maybe the Pokeything, that's been granted permission to prevent the device from sleeping. Go into application manager and force close all running apps, or download something like Greenify to help do it for you.

If you have a rooted device, try Wakelock Detector. This app will help you finding out which app causes it.

Re: Samsung S4 - always stays AWAKE

Yeah, also try "better battery stats". This should give you more hints as to what keeps your phone awake.
I am assuming you already tried restarting your phone. If all else fails, then doing a factory reset **may** help (make sure you back up first).
