    This paper is an investigation about the performance of the three Bluetooth low power modes (i.e. hold, sniff and park). The performance metrics of interest were response times from master to slave, from slave to master, and the current consumptions in each mode. From these low power modes the sniff mode offers generally the best response times whereas parked devices have the smallest current consumption. Since the characteristics of each mode offer different functions to the Bluetooth system itself, the final usage defines which mode should be selected.
