Media Server ?

Just lately have noticed in my battery stats that Media server seems to be taking the lions share, at the moment on battery for 15 hours, media server showing keep awake for 15 hours, 59% of battery use. Cannot remember seeing this in battery stats until a few days ago, still getting good time on battery so no biggie, just would like to know? have looked for zero media files etc, removed some live wallpaper or is this normal.

Yep.   got this one as well.

rebooted phone at about 12.30 am and woke at 7.50 to the plug your charger in fanfare .

60% down to 2% in less than 8 hours.

The phone is totally stock.

I installed skype 3 days ago ,not to use but more to see how it would function and never got round to taking it off yet.

And all this after boasting to the wife how great my battery is compared to hers...

Typical.

Whoops... just dawned on me that i installed xbmc on there yesterday as well.

So it looks like removing xbmc (or skype) has fixed my battery draining -media server-issue.

One thing i forgot though is that i had installed nova launcher also at the same time i installed xbmc so i that was removed yesterday as well.

I am not sure if skype was the culprit as it had been there without issue for a few days so im kinda pointing the finger at nova launcher now.

Im just glad that things seem to have went back to normal ,although i am tempted to stick nova back on as i really like it having used it on previous phones and at least it will pinpoint what app the problem was actually with.

Reinstalled nova 48 hrs ago and all is still ok so assume that xbmc must have been the culprit after all.

Dont need it on my phone so no need testing it again,put it down to experience.
