Ok on better battery stats look at wake locks or something similar in the app as that would be the most likely cause if the prevention of deep sleep.

Btw, over time the battery will become better. Give it a few weeks

Ah. I deleted social gallery from the system partition and replaced with the stock 4.0.4 gallery application. That'll be why I don't have the issues.

Why would the gallery be using an audio_in process? Also, when I listened to music earlier on my OSD a new process appeared as Audio_out under com.intel.android.gallery.media.social gallery and it ran for 10s more. Its probably irrelavent I'm just wondering why a gallery app would be using audio in/out.

I'm using Quickpics but Social Gallery can play Video files can it not? That would explain the audio link.

Although I believe it's fixed now I came across this from within betterbatterystats regarding a bug in Chrome posted back in July :-
http://forum.xda-dev....php?p=28676218

"I found that using Chrome for Android would, at times, drain my battery in the background substantially, to the point where it would be the first or second highest "reason" listed for battery drain, even when I hadn't opened the app all day.

Thanks to Badass Battery Monitor, I found that Chrome was using the Gyroscope in the background. This doesn't make any sense, so I assume it's a bug.

Here are the steps I used to resolve it:

1. Open up Chrome
2. Go to Settings
3. Select "Developer tools"
4. Uncheck "Enable Tilt Scrolling"
5. Reboot the phone"

So battery draining reasons might not be soo simple as it first appears.

Which stat should we be concentrating on within betterbatterystats for wakelocks? Count, Wake Count or Expire Count? I'm presuming Wake Count.

Yeah but it was under my pillow for an hour or two when it was using audio_in, I would presume its just a bug, I'll disable and install stock ICS gallery and let everyone know what battery is like today.

I did it the hard way be deleting social gallery from the /system folder (which needs root & unsecure adb) but disabling social gallery from the Settings > Apps control panel then installing GalleryICS will work just as well.

BetterBatteryStats is still showing *overflow* and audio_out under com.intel.android.gallery.media.Social Gallery
despite having force stopped then disabled Social Gallery. Why would it still have anything happening? I just find it slightly strange that for a gallery app its using audio in/out while I'm not using my phone and after disabling it still has processes going on.

Ahh, it appears I've made a newbie error lol. I'll reboot and keep an eye out to see if it goes away then. I'd imagine it will though.

Edit: just rebooted and *overflow* is at the top of the wakelock list since boot.

OK, I am a newbie and obviously missing something obvious to you guys. I've got the same entries after rebooting yesterday despite disabling the app, why does rebooting put them back in BetterBatteryStats list?

I've rebooted twice and they're still there, first reboot just left two, second reboot and after a sleep I all of a sudden have all of the wakelocks back.

I think that the social gallery process actually deals with other parts of the system, specifically audio, and that's why its not going away. I'm pretty new to this stuff, maybe the android gallery process does deal with audio etc. And its well known, but I just assumed gallery meant pics/video.

Just delete it manually and replace it with GalleryICS or something. Job done. You'll need to set the system as read/write. Easiest way is to install the unsecure adb app from the market and enable this, then on your computer open up the command prompt/terminal and do

adb remount
adb shell rm /system/app/SocialGal*

and boom - it's gone :D

It'll let you use an insecure adb so you can use adb push and adb remount commands from your computer. Easier to delete and replace files with this enabled.

okay, thankfully looks like it is successfully going into deep sleep... I had to remove Viber and turn off data as I have wifi...Will test it again with Juice Defender on. Also removed some annoying games which "might" be waking up the device with notification ads, and as discussed at length in this thread, Social Gallery is a culprit too... will report once I get rid of it completely
