MagTag deep sleep power consumption

Does it make sense to deep sleep the MagTag if one is going to awaken every minute? I imagine that cold booting into CircuitPython must eat a decent amount of power.

Probably, but I encourage you to experiment and post your findings.

It probably makes sense and saves power to deep sleep once a minute?

I will post any experimentation I do.

I figure for idling more than a second, deep sleep is good. Only your logging ammeter knows for sure.
