    Every time my phone is locked with the screen off I always see my GPS on for barely a second after my screen turns on but the GPS is off and it kinda bugs me because idk what it is.
    It isn't affecting my data at all but if anyone could give me an explanation I would appreciate it

    I have a Verizon Galaxy Note 2 Rooted running Google launcher and firmware 4.3 model RUEMJ9

    Since your phone is rooted, take a logcat - either while the phone is asleep & locked (via ADB), or immediately after turning the screen on (using Syslog, or similar). The logfile will be huge, but search for "GPS" or the approximate time.
