Argon power draw when sleeping

I have an Argon connected to a computer through usb, it is running Device OS 3.0.0, and it is set to sleep in the hibernate mode and wake on the gpio setting. There is no other external hardware attached to it and the argon is set to system mode manual, but it is drawing a current of 965 microamps. According to docs, this number should be down to 65 microamps. I also tried using the ultra low power sleep mode and the discrepancy is still 900 microamps. What might be causing this increased power draw?

I’ve solved the issue, it was to do with the usb cable. I used an external power source instead of using the usb port on a computer and the current was down to the expected value.
