How to achieve low power consumption?  XML

Hi all,

I just recently purchased my first miniWireless RFM69HW 915MHz module (AW-40225) and am excited to incorporate it into a few ongoing projects. These projects are battery operated so low power consumption is critical. I have tried several low power solutions such as the Node sample code from lowpowerlabs (https://www.github.com/lowpowerlab/rfm69), etc. but I can't seem to get the power consumption below 5ma. I have been reading quite a few posts and see that several people have achieved much lower power consumption with similar boards and I was hoping those fine people would be willing to share their secrets.

My config is simple, I am using the above mentioned module with no other sensors. I am applying 3.3v power directly to VCC and measuring the current with an Amprobe multi-meter. I would post the code but it is stock, and long.

Is there a newer/better library? Do I need to modify the stock RFM69 code?

Any input would be appreciated.
