A network connected host is expected to generate/respond to applications and protocols specific messages. Billions of Euro of electricity is wasted to keep idle hosts powered up 24/7 just to maintain network presence. This short paper describes the design of our cooperative Network Connectivity Proxy (NCP) that can impersonate sleeping hosts and responds to packets on their behalf as they were connected and fully operational. Thus, NCP is in fact an efficient approach to reduce network energy waste.
