    Ive noticed in the last few days that my battery has been draining rather quickly. At first I thought it was from using it too much (texting and a little games). Im usually pretty good about closing things after I use them. Today i had played a game for a few minutes and turned it off. I noticed my battery draining quickly without me doing anything. I saw it drop 5% in about 10 minutes. Closed everything in task manager. Still dropping. I finally checked my battery usage and the game I had been playing was still draining power. It showed 15% of my usage to a game that wasnt running. Restarted my phone and looked, it was still running.
    I didnt really care about it, so i just uninstalled. That fixed it. Later I looked and a different game was draining. I had played it after uninstalling the other. Checked that one and it wasnt running. After a restart, complete shut down/start up and even pulling the battery for lack of anything else, it was still drawing power. I found that there was an android update available so I did that hoping that maybe... just maybe...
    Nope. its still running. only drawing 5-8% right now.
    Any ideas?
