    I've been using the PRIV for almost 3 years, and while I've had wakelock issues in the past, a 32-second reboot would fix it for a week.

    That was not ideal, but something I could live with. However, now it's been getting wakelocked multiple times a day. This morning, I found the phone being awake since 6am, even though it was sitting face-down on my desk all night. I've forced stop pretty much every app, and it still stays awake, though I'm certain a reboot will fix it again, for at least a few hours.

    I have no social media apps except for WhatsApp, one email sync through Outlook (work account), another through Hub.

    It's a Rogers STV100-3, running the latest AAW068 build. I did an autoloader in Dec 2017, and it still gave me wakelocks roughly once a week.

    Do you have some kind of battery widget / icon installed? try removing that - it might be polling your device to update, causing it to wake

    I did use AccuBattery and BetterBatteryStats, but getting rid of them didn't help either.

    Last night I booted into Safe Mode, and still it managed to wakelock overnight.
    So, I guess it must be a system app causing the problem.

    Sorry, forgot about this thread as I've been slowly giving up on my Priv.

    Have you tried putting you phone in airplane mode and battery saver overnight? Also, install something like gsam battery so you can see what time battery usage spikes.

    Some time ago, my I worked out that my overnight whatsapp backup was causing issues. I removed some old messages and a couple of corrupted photos and that helped me.

    No worries. I sometimes put it in battery saver overnight, but never put it in airplane mode.
    It is back to the past norm of wakelocking roughly once a week, which I can live with, but I still will give GSam a try.
