Random wake-ups and sleeps!!!

Greetings!

I am having the most frustrating problem with my Nexus.  The other day I went to plug it in and the little lightning bolt charging icon was showing up in my notification bar, even though I hadn't plugged it in yet.  It's still like that today and randomly goes away and comes back.  The bigger problem is that shortly after I noticed that, the phone started randomly waking up, staying on for random amounts of time and then going back to sleep...only to wake up again and repeat the process.   As you can imagine, the drain on the battery is incredible.  

I've tried rebooting several times and have popped the battery out a couple times as well.  I disabled my screen locker app, thinking that may have been the problem, to no avail.

Is anyone else having or heard of this problem.  Any info or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Are you using a weather widget of some sort that wakes up to update?

I have a weather widget, but have had it for quite some time now and the random waking just started.  I am finding tons of threads online of folks having the same issue(along with the battery charging icon thing), but there doesn't seem to be a consensus if the problem is hardware or software.  Very frustrating.  I have even uninstalled my most recent apps just to see if they may be the culprit.

Hi, powderday-

I'm sorry to learn of the strange issues! I have the Nexus too, and I love it. While I have not seen this on my device, I can recommend a few tricks. The basic one is to enable safe mode (http://bit.ly/vW58PM) to see if these issues continue while in the mode. Do you recall an update to the weather widget recently? If this fails, I suggest a hard reset (http://bit.ly/swCYZF) to correct these. Backing up the devices information via Google for your contacts, and a computer for your media files is best! Keep me posted so I can continue to help.

Thank you,
