    Hi, guys. I've been experiencing massive battery drain since CM11S 05Q and I thought the new CM12S update would solve the problem. But it seems that i was wrong cause Google Play Services still drains my battery after the update. I've search around the web and most of the solutions suggests to disable wake up, keep awake and auto start using privacy guard. Is this a viable solution? If these functions are disable will it effect my everyday usage of the device?

    UPDATE: Seems like CM acknowledged the problem caused by the Google Play Services. Hope that they will fix it as soon as possible. Btw, I'm on version 7.0.99.

    I had the same problems and so denied keep awake and wake up. No issues anymore and no other problems it seems. I did read somewhere that that affects Google Now in some way, but nothing too bad.

    Privacy guard is awesome

    No issues so far. Flashed yesterday night with 100% battery and almost 16 hours later is 59%.

    Not really, disabling it would be fine.

    This is the problem with Google Play Service 7 and the Systemupdateservice wakelock. I actually thought that it got solved 2 weeks ago, this is really annoying...

    hmm.. that's weird cause not everyone seem to be affected by the problem. Is it because of the Google Play Service's version. Btw i'm running on 7.0.99. I've read somewhere that this version of service affects all custom roms. Is it true?

    I had the same problem, Google Play services drained the battery more than the Screen.
    go to Setting>Apps>Google Play Services and uninstall updates, this will restore it to the earliest version use for few hours to check battery drain if it isn't draining the battery anymore, then update it from the play store again.
    I know it doesn't really make sense but it did solve the issue for me.

    I use the same method. Dramatically saves my battery now. Why must Google be a double edged sword. You would figure they would fix a major issue like this..

    I vote no because it is not happening now.

    However it did happen last week, out of no reason my 1+1 battery was draining even it was charging. I pick it up and actually felt the back of the phone was warm, which never happen before.

    I checked app manager and Google service was using 30%+ of the battery, again, this never happen before. I tried to kill/quit the app but situation did not improve. The app will just pop up again and start draining power like crazy. I end up rebooted my phone and problem did not occur after.

    Will try to uninstall updates and reinstall again.. If this method doesn't work then i might hav to use the privacy guard.

    uninstalling the google play services updates in the app manager and than re installing it in the play store fixed the "systemupdateservice" battery drain for me.

    just to report that my OPO is acting weird too. Massive battery drain, slow charging (even with the original charger), and overheat.
    Man this update sucks..
    Going to revert to CM11 for now.
