  • It depends of your values in Client Status.

    In the Monitoring workspace, click Client Status, then, in the Home tab, in the Client Status group, click Client Status Settings.

  • active become inactive depends on many things like others said heartbeat discovery ,client status reporting settings ( all settings like heartbeat,policy,hardware,software comes into client status reporting settings).so if client falls within the range of what you configured(< X days) in client status reporting settings,client will be active,if it fall out of range (>X days) ,it will be shown as inactive .It has nothing to do with maintenance tasks.

    maintenance task does not mark clients as inactive, it only deletes those that have been marked inactive by other process after X number of days.

  • From the Technet article I previously posted :

    noteNote
    If none of the settings are met, the client will be marked as inactive.
