    lately ive noticed apps running in the background causing huge battery drain, I first noticed my batter dropping a percent every few minutes even with my phone in my pocket

    I opened application manager and seen apps showing in the list, I use to believe these were in a frozen state but they had ram and cpu usage assigned to them forcing them closed made my battery stop with the rapid draining

    any way to stop this other than manually closing them every time

    having apps cached in RAM isnt draining the battery. By closing them, in the longrun youll use more battery because opening them uses more power.
    Sounds like at least one of your apps is misbehaving though so you have to try n track it down. In Data Usage in Settings, is any app usin a lot of background data?

    Download betterbatterystats and let it run for a few hours.

    It will identify what is holding your phone awake

    Funky above me is correct, apps that are cached don't drain battery

    How about disabling them through AppMgr. Move over to all. You will get a list of all the apps on the phone. You can delete those you yourself have added, and disable those that can't be deleted. When you might want to re-enable them, just go towards the end of the list which will show the disabled apps and put them back in action. Hope this helps.
