German term or phrase: weggelegt
KONTEXT: ,,Die Gastsysteme auf der linken Seite in gelb sind noch nicht zugewiesen. Es gab aber, das hatte man beim Import gesehen, Systeme, die waren rot. Und diese Systeme sind in der Rubrik ,ausgeschaltete Gastsysteme' zu finden. D.h. Sie können auch Maschinen, die kurz gestartet wurden, und wieder weggelegt wurden, weil man sie im Moment nicht benötigt, einem Kunden zuweisen, um die Kosten später zuzuweisen.''

The above German is a transcript of a video training speech, which is why it appears to be "written" so poorly. My question relates to "weggelegt". Based on the German context here, can I simply translate "weggelegt" as "deactivated"? I know that weglegen is usually translated as "lay/set aside" but that doesn't work here and since we're talking about a ,,Rubrik ,ausgeschaltete Gastsysteme' ", I thought I might be able to use "deactivated". Any help greatly welcomed.
