A system for reducing the power consumed in modems while maintaining maximum data throughput that includes logic for detecting when data is not being transmitted across an established modem connection and turns off all modem functions not required to maintain the connection. A protocol between the local and remote modem is run using logic running at lower clock rates to maintain the connection. Existing error correction and data compression protocols as well as distortion compensation functions are turned off during this period. When data is again to be sent, the clocks are returned to their data transmission operating frequency and the function previously turned off are turned on.
