Sonicpoints are in the state Operational Sensor Off | On

Sonicpoints are in the state Operational Sensor Off | On. What does this mean?
The Wireless Intrusion Detection and Prevention (WIDP) mode is configured for each Sonicpoint on the Sensor tab as shown below:
This can be enabled/disabled via a customised Schedule configured under System | Schedules or one of the built-in schedules.
Operational Sensor On means that the Enable WIDP Sensor has been ticked on the Sensor tab and is currently active as per the defined schedule.
Operational Sensor Off means that the Enable WIDP Sensor has been ticked on the Sensor tab but is currently inactive as per the defined schedule.
These messages are not necessarily a problem if you are using the WIDP feature intentionally.
If the Sensor is showing as On when you expect it to be Off, or vice versa, please check your schedules and time stamp.
