Sensor Toolbox, Directional Shake demo

I can't make sense of the Directional Shake demo in the Sensor Toolbox. What I want to do is:

 

1. Play around with the threshold and debounce sliders to see what works for my application.

2. Measure the current consumed in the sleep state. I expect to see 6 - 10 micro amps, as per the datasheet.

3. Measure the current consumed in the wake state.

 

I don't see how to put the device into sleep mode. I can only control Standby vs. Active, and when's it's Active, it's always in Wake Mode.

 

I also can't get the MCU Status light to go green, no matter how low the threshold or debounce sliders. "Default Transient Settings" is unchecked.

 

Estimated sleep current is 0.524 mA. Why is this 1000 times higher than the datasheet indicates for triggering?
