Nodes in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) are limited by battery Power and life time of the network can be improved by using energy efficient techniques. IEEE 802.11 defines Power Saving Mechanism (PSM) and has two different power states: awake and doze. Power Saving Mechanism (PSM) is one of the energy efficient technique which improves network life. This paper is to investigate the performance of grid and random topology of static network under Power Saving (PS) mode. In this paper, the performance of static nodes using Bellman Ford algorithm for multi-hop network was investigated.
