    Try and wipe cache and dalvik-cache. You can also go to setting>about phone>battery and see if the uptime and awake time are the same. From there go to Battery use and see what is at the top of the list.

    I would wipe dalvik-cache and cache then charge it to 100% and see how it is after that. Looks like it is not sleeping for some reason. Might be a recent app installed.

    Wiping those is kind of like deleting temporary internet files on your pc. The phone will rebuild dalvik-cache when you boot it. Sometimes you can get data in these partitions that can cause odd issues with your phone. It a good idea to wipe these at least once a week under normal use. If you flash alot of things, then it gets done more that that anyway

    You can restore it but it might not indicate what the problem is. If you are not concerned with the issue but just want it fixed, you can try and restore a nandroid. Otherwise you can trace down what the issue is in case it shows up again at some point.

    You can get rid of those as long as you have flashed them already. I usually keep a copy of the rom I am running and a couple of nandroids along with my music, pics, etc.

    It deletes "temporary" files on your phone that can cause lag and other issues.
