1. A method for a mobile station operating in a wireless communication system, the method comprising:
receiving configuration information for power management from a base station, wherein the configuration information informs the mobile station of a first time period during which the mobile station monitors signals from the base station and of a second time period during which the mobile station does not monitor signals from the base station;
applying the configuration information for power management to one or more primary carriers and one or more activated secondary carriers;
receiving downlink data from the base station via the one or more primary carriers and the one or more activated secondary carriers during the first time period; and
receiving a specific Medium Access Control (MAC) message from the base station, wherein the mobile station stops the first time period when receiving the specific MAC message.
