    Is anyone aware of an app that lets you know which apps or processes are running within the ram manager for task manager? Here is my situation. If I fully charge my phone at say midnight, and then unplug it and leave it on silent mode for the night, when I wake up around 8 my battery is usually around 60 percent. The pull down notification screen will say something like my gps had been active since 5 or 6 am.Task manager shows no running apps. But when I go into ram in task manager and click clear memory then the gps stops . Which app can I use to pinpoint exactly what is using my gps randomly? I don't like to leave my phone plugged in all night but have been forced to the past week or so. I also have uninstalled 3 apps that were installed within that time frame and I am still getting the gps problem. any help is greatly appreciated.
