    Google play services is running in the background and using all my battery. This started after my update to android 10.

    I cant put play services to sleep and I've tried everything to slow it down.

    The trouble with saying you've tried everything is that it doesn't tell us any particular thing you've tried. ;)

    So I'd try all of the usual suspects: clear Play Services' cache, clear the system cache if you have one. Don't try clearing data for Play Services unless you are truly desperate: that may not fix it but it will likely interfere with some things (GMail notifications if I recall correctly) for a few days.

    It's not Android 10 per se - I've been using that since the summer without anything like this. It may be a quirk with your device or it may be something that affects your model: I've not suffered it lately but have known Play Services updates that increase battery drain on certain models in the past, and it's sometimes been a case of waiting for another Play Services update to fix it. Hopefully it won't come to that.

    Sorry, I am at work so cant write long responses... I did do the usual fixes such as clearing caches, disabling background services, I even went through and turned off many of my background location services. I did this for both the main system and for knox.

    My play store percentage use was 26% of background usage and the time matched how long the phone had been off the charger.

    I just reset the play services data, there was about 9GB of data stored in there, so I guess I will see if that works.

    I even tried to rollback the play services to an earlier version but I click the button and nothing happens, even though it isnt greyed out.

    So, the data delete from play services didnt help any... I think I'm running out of options

    could be either a bad download or install of the update....might want to start thinking about a factory reset.

    if you do a reset but then restore with a backup that may be faulty, you are reinstalling the issue.

    it could be some app you have installed that's not yet compatible with Android 10. unfortunately there's no magic bullet that can fix all the google services issues that we see over the internet because we all have different apps and things installed. i think a hard reset is overkill.
