Claim of US Patent No. 10,342,062

1. A computing device for network power management, the computing device comprising:a power state manager to determine whether to trigger a network power down state; and
a network power manager to (i) advertise an active-to-network-power-down transition state to a local network in response to a determination to trigger the network power down state, (ii) determine whether any peer device of the local network rejected or aborted the network power down state within a predetermined rejection time period in response to advertisement of the active-to-network-power-down transition state, (iii) advertise the network power down state to the local network in response to a determination that no peer device rejected or aborted the network power down state, (iv) determine whether any peer device of the local network rejected the network power down state within a predetermined propagation time period in response to advertisement of the network power down state, and (vi) enter the network power down state in response to a determination that no peer device rejected the network power down state.
