STM32L151xB Low Power Modes Current Consumption

Dear folk,

I am not able getting the desired power consumption for STM32L151xB (48 Pins) using the predestined STM32L1xx_StdPeriph_Examples/PWR/CurrentConsumption.

More detailed, I need to use a Low Power mode which allows me to wake the controler over USART, which led me to Low Power sleep (Wakeup on any interrupt). As said, the problem is neither the code, nor the LPM itself, I am just not able to reach the desired current consumption of <10µA. With the attached code it is just possible to reach ~50µA.
FYI, during normal run, my clocks are using HSE on 8MHz (VCO range 2). This posted code is the "reduced" code of the Example which gets me 53µA, the least I can get with those examples.

I'm trying this for a while now, changing clocks and so on, but cannot reach my goal. Could you please take a look and give me some advice? Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
