When you put your computer to sleep, a device can automatically wake the computer if the device is currently configured (allowed) to wake the system from a sleep state.

Some devices may support waking the system from a sleep state, but are not currently configured to wake the system.

Knowing which devices that are currently configured to wake the system from any sleep state can be useful if you want to prevent a device from waking the computer.
