    Lately, I keep getting this icon (like an exclamation mark) on my status bar. The battery seems to drain rapidly when it comes on. If I do a restart, it turns itself off. How can I keep this from re-occurring?

    Hi

    Have you turned off "Location" in settings. That will prevent any app from requesting a gps location which is what is happening when you see the "exclamation mark with a hole" icon
