Low power modes

consumption is a bit high for my ap and am wondering if there are any tricks. Or
do I need to go to C to implement the power saving modes that the chip can
support?

No need to switch to C, you have access to all same registers from BASIC.

I haven't tried for a while, but the main trick is getting the part to wake up
again, which can be triggered by EINTx or Alarm, probably others. Details on
this in NXP's user manual.

You could also slow the clock down, which would have a big impact too.
