void setup() 
  USB.println(F("BLE_18 Example")); 

  // 0. Turn BLE module ON


void loop()

  // 1. Put Bluetooth module into Sleep mode
  USB.println(F("Bluetooth module sleeping."));   
  // Now the Bluetooth module has the UART interface disabled 
  // and is not able to receive any command.
  USB.print(F("BLE MAC is: "));
  // The power consumption is reduced to the minimum.

  // 2. Wake up Bluetooth module  
  USB.print(BLE.wakeUp(), DEC);
  USB.println(F("Bluetooth module alive.")); 
  // UART interface is now enabled again, 
  // the module is able to communicate with Waspmote.    
  USB.print(F("BLE MAC is: "));


BLE_18 Example
Bluetooth module sleeping.
BLE MAC is: 000000000000
Bluetooth module alive.
BLE MAC is: 000780789EEB
