Low power CF cards

I was wondering if people had any suggestions on Compact Flash 802.11b
cards that have a very low sleep mode power consumption... Most CF cards
seem to draw 70-80 mA of current even in sleep mode, which is a big hit to
battery life. Somehow, the PCMCIA versions often are much lower power in
sleep mode (~20 mA of current).

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with lower power cards.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
