Exclamation iPhone 4S Problems. Need help!

First of all,i'm sorry for my bad english.I will try to explain my problems.
I have an Iphone 4s.It's from japan,softbank network.I'm liveing in romania,i have cosmote network and i'm useing a gevey sim to can use te phone here.I have ios 6.1.2 and the phone is jailbraked.
1.First problem is that when i'm tryng to power it off,he is automaticaly power on (so he is autorestart when i'm tryng to shut it down) this problem is the same even he is jailbreaked or not.I restored him but nothing (as new iphone).The only way taht is working is when the phone sis connected to the pc or to the charger,but when i pull the cable out the phone is starting back on (without to use the power button).I notticed that the phone (connected to charger,and off) is charging the baterry (i mean,i connect the cable,power it off,let it connected,and after a while i start the phone and the battery is charged) and i don't know if this is normal.
2.The problem number two is that the battery is drain verry quick.Like 1 percent at maximum 5 minutes.I noticed that in the settings - general - usage - time from last full charge the usage time is almost the same with the stand by time (couple off minutes diference) with the phone in stand by.I tryed to go in settings - privacy - location services - system servicess and turn off all the things from there,i stopped siri,push notificasions and put my accounts (icloud,gmail) to manualy but the problem with the ussage and stand by is the same.I stopped the wifi,edge and 3 g off.Same...and the battery is drainig quickly.What can i do ?((((
I sawed another thing that from time to time (when the phone is locked,i mean in stand by) the phone is autorestarting and i can't see the usage time from lAst charge...i can see just some lines like ---.This happened 5 mins ago,i had 90% to the battery,and after restart i had 93%

As for your first point: that's just how it supposed to be. The phone will always automatically power on as soon as you plug it in.

Your second issue is kind of known to occur on the 4S, you know, its battery life actually decreased compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 4. Anyway, if you think something's not how it's supposed to be, restore the phone to the latest version of iOS. Alternatively, you could try to go to an Apple store or call the Apple support. If your phone is still under warranty, you might be eligible for a replacement. The last option is to replace the battery yourself, which is comparatively easy on the iPhone 4/4S.

Let me rephrase what I said about your phone's behavior while charging. It's just normal for the phone to boot once plugged in, it doesn't matter whether you pressed the power button or not. I don't know why Apple doesn't let the user decide when to turn on their phone, but it's definitely not a bug. If you want the phone not to have any connection to mobile networks, Wifi, Bluetooth, etc., you can put the phone into Airplane mode.

And about your battery life, you could try downloading BatteryInfo Lite from Cydia. It shows your battery's design capacity (what it's supposed to have) and it's current maximum capacity (what it actually can have maximally). If the maximum capacity is far lower than the design capacity, you probably have a bad battery. If it's not, it might be software-related. Do you have any power-hungry tweaks installed from Cydia (like Winterboard and a bunch of themes)? If that's not the case either, all you can do is restore your phone to the latest version of iOS and then set it up as new.

Design capacity :1430
Max capacity : 1214
In cydia i have some tweaks but not winterboard or themes.I have activator,sbsettings,ifile,killbackground,open in chrome,stop & snooze,simanager,appcake,vshareremote messages 2,battery detective,attachment saver and some more but unsinfiant.And the thing that i can't power down the phone (without charger or useing it,i mean i'm away from home or tryng to go with a airplane and tryng to power it off,but he is autorestarting,i mean when i'm power it off he is making the same thing like i'm useing the reeboot function from sbsettings) this with or without jailbreak it is the same.I saw something or internet like cleaning the powerdock with a toothbrush or isophropilic alcoohol,i tryed but nothing.

Reading batteries isn't a exact science. Sometimes when you restart or respring the percentage will increase or decrease.
From start the 4S has a crappy battery life and 1% in 5 minutes is "normal" among jailbroken iPhones. My money is on a tweak you installed that rapes your battery. I suggest deleting everything you installed from Cydia.

Multa bafta !
