I just had my galaxy s3 turn itself off during the night... I think. It had to boot back up, with the logos and all... but its weird.
Luckily I woke up an hour before the alarm on it was supposed to go off. I tried to wake the phone to check the time, and noticed it was completly off.
I'm not sure if this is due to some random crash or app, though I haven't downloaded anything new in months. I could have very well accidentally turned it off when setting it down as well.
What I find odd is, I made it from 9am to 12am and only lost 25% of my battery. It was at 75% when I went to sleep. When I turned my phone on after finding out it had somehow turned itself off, the battery was at 52%. It less than 7 hours, it had somehow drained another 25% almost. Also, it says that my phone has been on "battery" for 12 hours and some minutes... even after only turning it on a few hours ago.
The only things that show for battery use is : Screen 40%, Media Server 15%, Andriod OS 10% , Android System 8%, device Idle 8%, Cell Standby 7% and Music Player 6%.
I think if my issue was caused by anything, it was the Media Server. I have no clue though what would have used it? Does youtube videos count as that? I read that playing music does... but then why would music player show up on the list when a percentage that is much lower?
So many questions... Hopefully I'll figure the answers out soon enough.
