Not really. As explained in the comment in DAPM patch, this enables will
be effective (burn mW) only after respective IO is taken out from
STANDBY mode. DAPM takes care of managing STANDBY mode for all IOs and
ADC/DAC. I know this way of handling low power mode is bit non-trivial,
but it is what is recommended by chip designers. Actually Mark was also
initially confused with this and requested to put enough documentation
into code. After that I tried explaining the logic in source code
comment in DAPM patch. Let me know if it is not clear and doesn't convey
clearly what is should.
