DG128 - Wait and Pseudo Stop mode current usages

I'm having a bit of trouble with reducing the current consumption for my project.

I need to put the module into a low power mode where wake-up on CAN is enabled.

I've tested wake-up on CAN for both Wait and Pseudo-Stop mode, both work correctly.

However, my problem is with the current usages. When the module enters wait mode, the current drops from about 30mAmps to 12mAmps.

When entering stop mode, the current usage drops only to 22mAmps. Shouldn't this drop alit further?
