I suspect a HW problem on your testing node. Have you tried with another
one? The content of MotePlatformC has been stable for a long time and Null
consumes ~ 7-8uA on a sensor populated node without any modifications to the
code. In general, when not used, the pins on the msp430 are put in input to
reduce the leakage currents.
