  2. Debug Run your project (Debug > Debug Project).
  3. Halt the project by using either a Pause, a breakpoint, or a power breakpoint.
  4. View Power Data in the Power Monitor window. See Power Monitor Views.

If you encounter problems while using the Power Monitor, consider the following:

The power monitor must be plugged into two ports of the MPLAB® REAL ICE™in-circuit emulator: the driver board slot and the logic probe connector. Ensure that the power monitor is securely plugged into both these ports, even if the power light is on.
