Google Play Store alone accounts for 52% of my phone's battery use!
I would think Google Play Store would only run when downloading or updating apps, or when checking if apps need updated. Since last unplugging, I haven't manually run Google Play Store, nor have any apps been automatically updated.
Clicking through reveals that Google Play Store has been continuously requesting GPS. But I always have my GPS off in system settings.
I have all the sync settings off too. I don't want autosync.
So why is Google Play Store running uncommanded in the first place, and moreover, why is it using so much battery? How do I correct this?
Phone is LG G3 D855, Android version 4.4.2 KitKat. Rooted w/ xposed framework installed.
Things I tried:
I pressed the "stop" button in the above screenshot, which force-stopped the Google Play Store. But then many system services started shutting down and prompting me with "not responding" dialogs, until I eventually pulled the battery and restarted the phone.
I used SystemCleanup to disable several autoruns (such as receivers) for Google Play Store, so that it won't be constantly called on to run. I also killed the task using SystemCleanup (which did not kill the system).
