Rob there is no API call, if you are not performing any activity with BLE the system auto enters into low power.
So, as long as the device is advertising the chip will be in normal power mode?

Yes you are right.
I do a test for BLE low power on SDK3.7.0-3. But no significant reduction, still higher than 10mA.
Can you provide any examples for BLE low powersave?
Are you performing any advertisements or any activity with BLE ? Also where are you measuring power ?
I've been told that the Bluetooth system won't enter low power mode if the device is advertising or connected. But, even then I wasn't able to make the device draw less than 9mA after enabling the bluetooth stack (wiced_bt_stack_init). I have to call wiced_bt_stack_deinit and then put this code in the bluetooth management callback
switch( event )
/* Bluetooth stack enabled */
platform_gpio_output_low ( wiced_bt_control_pins[WICED_BT_PIN_POWER] );
