Seems the screen is what is causing the battery drain (duh). No idea why it was fine before in the dock and not now. I'm going to mess with the app Tasker today. Either turn off the display based on time or open/close Dak based on schedule. If Dak closes the screen will time out.

Get Fully Kiosk Browser. Might be able to do some of that stuff.

Messed with Corey's app suggestion and a few other to turn off display. I decided I want to find a better cable or charger instead

Ah I didn't know there was an Android app for it. Glad the browser was giving you issues so I know it's not just me

Biweekly update. I gutted my USB C dock. Added a new cable. Bought a right angle USB C adapter. Everything is working flawlessly now.
