XBee S1 will not respond when seated on the XBee USB adaptor with X-CTU. So far, been able to use another "control" module to test that the USB connection, software, and "Base" profile work fine. In addition, LEDs are connected to Pin 13, Pin 14, Pin 16.

Here are my results:

Is this the approach to determine if the module has a sleep mode setting, or burned-out?
