    It links everything Google on your device and makes keeping updated a little easier. it can't be disabled. Clear its cache and reboot. Settings -> Applications -> Google Play Services

    Tanks. I did what you suggested. Battery life is a bit better, but this app is still one of the top users of the my battery. I'm currently at 52% and the Google Play Services has used 10% of that. Is this normal??

    From where you see it in Battery usage, check and see if its allowed Background activity and shut it off if it is.
