I have no idea who created the name for PNP_DEVICE_NOT_DISABLEABLE, but I probably have the same reaction as you ... "seriously? that is what they named?" I mean come on, I think it could have at least been named PNP_DEVICE_CANNOT_BE_DISABLED. I am sure you can think of some better names too. If so, please leave a comment with your suggestions! While we had a chance to rectify this in KMDF in the WDF_DEVICE_STATE structure, we chose to keep the field name (NotDisableable) similar to the WDM name to avoid confusion.
