Looking for the ATtiny2313V? HVWTech has them! Lots of AVRs, just for you, so order TODAY!
This ATtiny2313 is the successor to the 1200 and 2313 series, with more features. The "tiny" series are designed to address the requirements of small battery operated devices by offering low-power consumption and a lots of useful features.

The AVR series of microcontrollers are right up there with Microchip PIC products. Powerful, inexpensive, and programmable with some very good open source software (look up GCC), with a vibrant user community.
Get some of these low-power features:
Active Mode @ 1 MHz, 1.8V - 300 µA
32 kHz, 1.8V: - 20 µA (including oscillator)
Power-down Mode - 0.5 µA (at 1.8V)
Now that's using just a wee bit of power!
For a low-voltage applications, it's an excellent solution! With a 0.5 µA current draw at standby, your capacitor is probably leaking more current than this microcontroller!
