I was hoping to self-powered the apollo3p evaluation board with some solar cells, but when I hooked it up to a power supply (instead of USB), I realized it was consuming 90mA(!) of current..even when I am running a deepsleep example code..

Most (99%+) of the current seems to be going to the debugger.. is there a way to disable the debugger on the eval board? I desoldered the debugger on one of my eval boards and the current indeed went from 90mA to < 1 mA... but if there's a better way to disable the debugger that would be way nicer..

Thanks!
