Battery draining apps on Android

I'm wondering if anyone has any pointers around trouble-shooting battery drain on apps?


We have an app that several users of Android phones have told us the OS is popping up a warning that it is draining the battery. Is reporting usage of around 1% per hour. This is in spite of the app not actually being active - in fact, on my test phone the phone was actually in lock mode for the past couple of hours.


Background gps location is not enabled.


The only thing I can think is that there is a timer running that triggers every few minutes - does anyone know if this timer continues running when the app is not active and/or the phone is in sleep/lock mode?
