WS2812B Reducing Power Consumption.

The drivers on WS2812B addressable neopixels are drawing current even when the neopixels are off, set to color 0 (no neopixels elements lit).Under 1 milliamp per pixel, but with lots of pixels this could add up. It’s also not so much compared to the current when they’re active but certainly a major concern for a battery powered device.”
