Power saving mechanism in general represents the techniques used to maximize the time that nodes spend in a low power consumption sleep state. These techniques require the sender to notify the receiver about the pending traffic using some form of traffic announcement. Asynchronous traffic announcement mechanisms are mostly suitable for the ad hoc environment. This involves relatively limited power savings. In this, a power saving mechanism is proposed. The aim is to improve the efficiency of asynchronous traffic announcement mechanisms by reducing the proportion o f time that nodes need to spend awake, by maintaining good connectivity properties.
