Yes, ACPI C states != CPU C states.  Often C6/C7 map to C3.  You might
have a BIOS option to control C6/C7.  I've seen several BIOSes that
default to only exporting Intel C3 as C2, but do not advertise Intel
C6/C7 as C3 until you enable that in the BIOS.

For idling, any Intel Cx state should work as long as the BIOS is
configured to export it as an ACPI Cx state.
