Even this should be simplified, if possible. Maybe something like: ...
put the system into a sleep state while taking into account the
concurrent arrival of wakeup events ...
I tried to put the word "reliably" in there, but it didn't seem to fit.
After all, the current /sys/power/state is already very reliable about
putting the system to sleep!
