[wake-lock] Does "system" wakelock really prevent "device's CPU from entering a standby mode"? (#136)

jyasskin has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/wake-lock:

== Does "system" wakelock really prevent "device's CPU from entering a standby mode"? ==
I suspect this wakelock really just allows the foreground page to continue receiving events, where, if the foreground page doesn't receive any events for a while, the CPU will still go to sleep.

If it actually behaves as currently described, this could be extremely wasteful for webpages that aren't actively mining bitcoins.
