Forward header correction Power Control Modes : Bluetooth 10 Power Control Modes Sniff Mode
This is a low power mode in which the listening activity of the slave is reduced.
In the sniff mode, the slave listens for transmissions only at fixed intervals Tsniff, at the offset slot Dsniff for Nsniff times. These parameters are given by the LMP in the master when it issues the SNIFF command to the slave.
Slave temporarily (for Thold sec) does not support ACL packets on the channel (possible SCO links will still be supported).
By this capacity can be made free to do other things like scanning, paging, inquiring, or attending another piconet.
The slave unit keeps its active member address (AM_ADDR). Power Control Modes (contd.) : Bluetooth 11 Power Control Modes (contd.) Park Mode
This is a very low power mode with very little activity.
The slave however, stays synchronized to the channel.
The parked slaves regularly listen for beacon signals at intervals decided by the beacon structure communicated to the slave during the start of parking.
The parked slave has to be informed about a transmission in a beacon channel which is supported by the master to keep parked slaves in synchronization and send them any other information.
Any message to be sent to a parked member are sent over the broadcast channel.
It also helps the master to have more than seven slaves. Baseband : Baseband 12 RF Baseband Audio Link Manager L2CAP RFCOMM SDP Applications Connection Setup : Connection Setup 13 Inquiry - scan protocol

May be changed, but only after a series of notitications to the DEV IEEE 802.15.3 : IEEE 802.15.3 Starting a piconet
DEV scans the for the best channel and sends out beacons -> the DEV becomes PNC
