I'm trying to get an Anarduino Mini to sleep to prolong battery life. I'm using this code in a function called by loop(), which I put together based on an article at arduino.cc:
The chip seems to go to sleep until pin 2 goes LOW, as desired. However, my multimeter says the anarduino is drawing 50mA in sleep, and closer to 60 when awake and playing a short tune on an attached speaker. Both these numbers seem high.
I've tried a number of other sleep code examples online with no luck. Do I need to do something different with the anarduino to get low current draw during sleep?
