I have a Mega163L running a clock application using a 32Khz Crystal on the timer counter. In power save mode I get av supply cuurent of about 30uA with a supply voltage of 3.6V and about 12uA with a supply of 2.7V. Is this the best that can be achieved ?

There was a message in the past in the AVRforum. Basically it says that you must ensure that the A/D is disabled prior to going to power save mode.

Also ensure that the pull-ups on the I/O ports are configured correctly to minimize unwarranted current draw.

If you find the message I am referring to (about four 'older messages' clicks) disregard the initial rambling.

Hope this helps
