In this paper, our previous work of Load-Based Power Saving (LBPS) for energy saving at the user side is extended to support integrated sleep scheduling for BS, RS, and MSS in the IEEE 802.16j Multi-Hop Relay Network. Topology-dependent time frame structure is adopted in our design to reduce the transmission delay in the relay network, in which the number of relay zone (for transmission over the relay link) depends on the hop count of RS in the network. Focused on non-real-time traffic, two
