Despite adding code to put this thing to sleep when not in use, it is still drawing 8 mA. I assume when it goes to sleep the green power LED should turn off as well (but it never does). This is killing my remote batteries every 2-3 days. I can't figure out why it isn't going fully to sleep and drawing micro Amps. Anyone have any thoughts? My most recent Trinket code is in my project details, any help is appreciated.

Another note - I have a hard switch that turns of the transmitter module, so that is not the culprit.
