"Long term reliability"

I'm not quite sure what this means, and I'm a bit scared of what it could mean. Could somebody please clarify this for me:

"Long term reliability cannot be assured unless all the Low-Power Idle States are enabled."

Does it mean hardware life? Does it imply the processor will degrade/wear if Low-Power Idle States are not enabled?
