Not using a WakeLock so why does the device stay awake?

 Use this to see what wake locks are being held in user space:

adb shell dumpsys power

Note that the device never goes to sleep while plugged in to USB.  Also the
system will never hold a wake lock for you just because you have an activity
or service running.  You can have it do so for you in an activity via
FLAG_KEEP_SCREEN_ON in a window, and the alarm manager will temporarily hold
one for you while sending an alarm broadcast to a broadcast receiver.

 It is possible for the kernel to hold wake locks for various reasons.  If
you want to see what was holding wake locks while you were unplugged, use
"adb shell dumpsys batteryinfo" and look at the last set of stats (this is
the raw information used to generate the battery usage UI).  However the
kernel wake lock information is extremely hard to understand, and
unfortunately I can't say for sure off-hand how to interpret it. :}
