    Strange. I only have the top two options, not the bottom one.

    Oh..and btw..It's official (at least for me) TURN OFF THE GPS!!
    I get the same battery life as you when I turn off my Data and stay on wifi only. Once I turn on data, my battery returns to it's normal nightly need of charge. For me it appears LTE is the cause of battery usage. When it is idle and data is on, I lose 5-8% an hour. When it is idle and data is off, I lose 0% an hour. Tested this on two 920's.

    For me, it wasn't just Nokia Music. It was literally anything that accessed the Music Hub, which is everything from Nokia Music, to Slacker, to Soundhound, etc. Turning off those two options was the main fix for me.

    I did everything posted in this forum regarding improving the battery life. I'm currently charging my phone, and will do another test once finished. I just couldn't believe that it only lasted 6 hours without doing anything with it. Oh well, even with battery problem, I'm stickin' with my Lumia 920! :)

    What's odd is that I noticed that even if I back completely out of Nokia Music, it stays playing in the music hub, so it doesn't actually kill it. Either way, I can now confidently use this phone again without worrying about the battery drain.
    I'll definitely try this out. Thanks for the detective work!

    My Music+Video options were already set as they were in the screenshot shown, and I still have issues with music players. I'll try a different one than CloudMuzik and see if I still have nasty battery drain after leaving backing out. If no problems, then it's obviously something with CloudMuzik staying open.

    No problem. Let me know how it goes. I'm curious if it was only affecting me specifically, or if it's something that we need to let Microsoft know about. I have had zero issues with battery life since disabling those two options.

    Second confirmation that disabling these two options gets rid of the drain. At least for mine
    HTC Droid Incredible(2 replacements) --> Nokia Lumia 900(Briefly)/Apple iPhone 4s --> Nokia Lumia 920(3 replacements) --> BlackBerry Z10(2 replacements) --> HTC One(3 replacements) --> Samsung Galaxy S4(Briefly) --> iPhone 5 --> iPhone 6+

    So, I've been using Nokia Music today, and I can already tell you that I'm getting better battery life than I was with CloudMuzik. Even if I just opened CloudMuzik and closed it again without playing any music, my battery would start draining more. I'm using Nokia Music now, and even with playing music and then pausing and hitting the home key, I'm using less battery. So, I'm on the hunt for a better Google Music player again.

    This probably has nothing to do with it, but since I turned off the settings in Music my live tiles are not working. WP Central and Amazing Weather HD. I have unpinned and replaced, uninstalled and reinstalled and did a soft reset a few times...nothing is working...

    Could we get a title edit to clarify this issue? It seems a solution has been found and the title is misleading.

    Okay, so after browsing the net, checking fb, twitter, and other social sites at least every 20 mins, taking pictures(lotsa 'em), and talking on the phone for almost 2.5hrs. In short, moderate use. I got this result. Follow the one posted above and you might have the same result.

    pretty impressive!

    Btw, I'm currently doing another test (I've drained the battery last night and charged it overnight) ) to see if the battery will perform better. I'll let y'all know the result later. ciao

    People complaining about Nokia Drive, goto settings and stop navigation, that will stop the app using the GPS and will kill the app once exited using back button.

    haha. You migh want to see these pictures below!

    As promised, here's the result after draining the battery and charging up overnight. I have no intention of putting my phone back on its wireless charger tonight because I'm pretty sure that my phone will still be alive when I wake up tomorrow morning.

    So yeah, turning off the music hub did the trick for me, and of course, draining up the battery.

    I did the usual, but I didn't talk to any of my friends for almost 2.5 hours. However, I'm connected to my phone's hotspot for more than an hour now. I don't know if that counts though.

    Also, I've received some complaints from some of my friends that my phone keeps breaking off during phone calls, but I've figured that it wasn't because of the phone, but rather my network connection. For some reason, I only get about a bar in my signal(pretty much every spot in my house except my room) and I've figured that was causing the problem. Other than that, I'm pretty satisfied with my first Lumia phone. As I tell me friends, 'I'm not faithful because I've used other smartphones before, but I always be loyal to Nokia!' Having been used: 5110, 3210, 8210, 6600, 6220, N82, N97, and Nokia 97mini, I must say that Lumia 920 is Nokia's best smartphone to date! Y'all agree?hehe

    I registered just to get on here and say that turning off the top two options under Xbox music settings stopped my rapid battery drain. I would loose up to 20% an hour for no reason and had to charge my phone constantly. After turning those settings off, and everything else still on, I loose 1% an hour at idle.

    I waited a couple of days to make sure, and after charging one time, I have not charged in over 24 hours. I still have 24 hours of battery life left. That is including 2 hours of youtube streaming for the commute.

    I know it may not be a solution for everyone, but after trying everything mentioned in every thread, this is the one that helped me. I wonder if you *do not* have an Xbox Music pass subscription, the phone does not handle that properly. A friend has the phone with a subscription and he never has had battery issues.

    Thanks again

This means that I have to either stop using Nokia Music (which I like), or reboot my phone at least once a day (which I don't like).

    Very frustrating. Anyone else know a better trick to kick the app out of memory?
    There are apps on the store that "STOP THE MUSIC" and are named as such. They force shut any music you have open that will pop up when you hit the volume buttons. I'm not sure if this necessarily closes the app completely and will resolve the battery drain problem, but it may be worth a shot.

    As a side note, I haven't had any problem with battery drain with Nokia Music... Until this morning, it drained my battery from 100% to 25% in two hours!!! I am not confident it was nokia music, but that was outrageous. I am going to do a soft reset and see if the problem is solved because that is unacceptable. Hope the stop the music apps help!

    Thanks for noting this, eventhough i have the background processes disabled for all the Nokia apps i never thought of disabling the syncing/updates embedded within the applications themselves. I've been having odd battery usage, so i went ahead and disabled everything. Got my fingers crossed this is what was eating battery in the background and has now been fixed.
