  Hi Yuchung,
Please note that as per Section of IEEE std 802.11, 1999 Edition
"This primitive is used by the higher-layer entities to manage or 
control the power consumption of the PMD when not in use. This allows 
higher-layer entities to put the radio into a sleep or standby mode when 
receipt or sending of any data is not expected."

Correct me if I am wrong.
