Smart Key suddenly 2nd highest battery drain

Smart Key was recently moved to EOL "final update" so is unlikely to be fixed.

But it looks like something has changed and is messing about with it.


I used "music" to listen to some music through MD-NC750   (no buttons, so no need for Smart Key to be active)  earlier in the day.    I no longer use my MH1C that used smart key in my previous xperias.


but by the end of the day my battery drain had been strangely high... and the 2nd item listed with 14% of the drain was SmartKey.  


I have uninstalled....  but if it is a silent unseen battery killer it will just annoy a lot of Xperia fans I am sure
