GPS Won't Shut Off - Draining Battery
« on: March 23, 2016, 04:36:33 PM »
So I have Location set to off, and prior to that set location to wifi only. Still, my GPS won't shut off. I'm running Dopa 5.1. Rebooting has no effect. This began a week or so ago, and I can't see a reason for it. Any suggestions appreciated.
Thx,
Shneor

Hi Shneor,  first thing that comes to mind is some kind of wakelock.  An app that uses GPS has some kind of autostart permission.  Possibly.

Thanks, Laura, I'll see if I can find anything. Isn't there an app that lists wakelocks?

An app that can show autostarts will allow you to find and stop wakelocks.

This guide is for stopping wakelocks in google play services,  but will show you how its done and you can apply that to other wakelocks.
