Pandora ver 2009.2
The excessive background battery use by Pandora when i haven't been listening to music has happened on both wifi and data.
I don't see any other patterns except that if i open Pandora that it will contribute to significant battery waste after i stop the music playing. Pandora has run my battery flat before. I listened to some music while driving then i stopped the music and did my activity starting with approx 70% battery (a hike, no music, took some pictures and was not using GPS track recording) and during the activity my phone shut off. When i got back to the car and was able to charge it then power on, Pandora was at the top of the list for battery consumption.
The only way i have found to stop this behavior is to remember to force stop Pandora after i'm done listening to music.
I don't have any problems with Pandora when i'm using it.
Just to be clear about those screen shots above....
I had launched Pandora and only checked some info on a band & didn't play any music. I used Pandora for at most a minute. Then later noticed my battery had gotten unusually low. Checked battery info using GSAM and saw the usage attributed to Pandora which is crazy, especially considering i had actually used Instagram, Chrome, Twitter and YouTube much more than i had Pandora.
