Debugger preventing sleep on R7FA2L1AB

Hello all,

I have been debugging  R7FA2L1AB3CFL for sleep mode (software standby). 

When debugger is connected the current (power) consumption never drops below 1.3 mA and when debugger is disconnected physically it draws only 3uA. 

What can go wrong? I have option LowPowerDubug turned on and it seemed to work for a while and after sometime the power consumption is not dropping. I have even seen 3uA while debugging session was on. I am using 'jLinkPro'

I have seen some scripts being used but it is written for RA6M3 , so if there is anything available for RA2L1, please also let me know.

here are more detailed log of debug session

    When I update the settings in UI regarding the location of script file it is not reflected in the .jlink file , is it okay or should I edit the file as well.

    Also when I am using the script the code behavior is changed it is not going into sleep at all , it keeps on waiting for entering snooze mode and when I press the 'pause' button on e2studio , it gives me this error.
