    Hello chavonne. Welcome to the forums.

    It sounds to me like you do have a rogue app/widget in there invoking a service which may not be playing nice with system files. I'd go ahead and remove all 3rd party apps and widgets, then shut the device down and let it charge fully.

    Then boot up and see how it's running. If no joy, it may be time for a factory data reset.

    And if the reset doesn't fix it, it's still under warranty, so it's not time to panic.
