In past few years, some people were working on developing algorithms and schemes to reducing power consumption of network device. I'm wondering, whether any of the proposed schemes has been realized on any cisco routers/switches?

If it does, can anyone tell me where to find the document about how long it will take a router(e.g., edge router of an AS) to wake up a sleeping line cards? Does it took milliseconds or microseconds?

Thanks a lot.
