    I finally solved the never-sleep problem. The problem seems to be related to the slow decay of the power to the Grove connector. With the sensor connected the decay is approximately 50ms. In the senosrSleep() function the power and rx/tx are turned off but the Vcc voltage doesn’t get a chance to decay before this function is exited which seems to cause an immediate wakeup. I added a 100ms delay to that function and now seems to work as planned.

    I am not sure what causes the immediate wake up but must be related to the residual voltage on the pwr pin. With the sensor disconnected the code works with out the delay probably because there is no capacitance to hold up the voltage.

    I cleaned up the code a bit and here is rev 1.0
