Topic: normal sleep current for lilypad? (Read 408 times) previous topic - next topic

I am using a 3*AA battery powered lilypad where it sleeps for extreme period of times woken by a user pressing reset.

I put it to sleep thru


Code: [Select]
   for(int x = 1 ; x < 18 ; x++){
    pinMode(x, INPUT);
    digitalWrite(x, LOW);
  }
    delay(100);
    LowPower.powerDown(SLEEP_FOREVER, ADC_OFF, BOD_OFF);


Still the current in sleepmode is 19uA, at least twice or four times what I was expecting.

Is there more I can do when putting it to sleep? Shouldn't I expect lower current?
