Mobile ad hoc network is a collection of mobile nodes communicating through wireless channels
without any existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. The main objective of such an ad hoc
network routing protocol is accurate and efficient route establishment between a pair of nodes so that messages may
be delivered in a well-timed manner. In this paper we examines two routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks–
the Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV), the table- driven protocol and the Ad hoc On- Demand
Distance Vector routing (AODV), an On –Demand protocol and evaluates both protocols with varying pause time,
sources based on:-Average End-to-End Delay, Packet Delivery Ratio, Packet Drop Ratio, Throughput, Normalizing
Routing Load. In this research work we try to switch nodes between active and inactive states to save energy. In Ad
hoc network nodes does not sleep. However, not every routing node is involved in the data delivery all the time so,
allowing redundant routing nodes to sleep may save other routing paths when the previous ones run out of energy.
In ad hoc network nodes switch between active and inactive states to save energy, thus improving the throughput of
AODV routing protocol. The performance comparison has been evaluated using widely recognized and improved
network simulator NS-2 version 2.34.
