Power usage of programmable xBee is high

0 votes
I have a Programmable XBee-PRO ZB. The manual specifies a combined usage of 4uA (3.5uA + 0.5uA) for the package. I can't get it to use less than 350uA.

Things I have tried/set:
- pm_set_radio_mode(PM_MODE_STOP);
- pm_set_cpu_mode(PM_MODE_STOP, WAIT_INFINITE);
- Power management enable low voltage detection set to false
- Keep uptime set to false
- All unused pins set to output with pull down set to false

I could use some suggestions.
