This paper presents a power management scheme that maximizes energy saving in wireless ad hoc networks while still meeting the required quality of service (QoS). We assume that battery-powered devices can be remotely activated by a waking-up signal using a simple circuit based on RF tag technology. In this way, devices that are not currently active may enter a sleep state and power up only when they have pending traffic. Radio devices select different time-out values, so called sleep pattern, to enter various sleep states depending on their battery status and quality of service. The performances of the proposed policy are derived by simulation for a simple ad hoc network scenario. Results show the achieved tradeoff between power saving and traffic delay
