Being that the Awake time is 1h 36m and your two biggest Kernel Wakelocks are each just over 1hr, it is obvious they are all related.

The bam_dmux_wakelock is an unknown. Many people, including myself, have it high on the list but no one can figure out what it is... yet. In my research to find out what it is the only thing I could find was that 'dmux' can be an abbreviation for 'demultiplexer'. Whether or not that's its meaning in this situation, I don't know.

As for the 'smdcntl0' (that's a zero at the end, not the letter O), I did some Google searching and found that "smd" could stand for "Samsung Mobile Display". Was anything occurring overnight that may have turned the screen on?
