The WMI kernel-mode component can send an IRP_MJ_SYSTEM_CONTROL request any time following a driver's successful registration as a supplier of WMI data. WMI IRPs typically are sent when a user-mode data consumer has requested WMI data.
Depends on the value at MinorFunction in the current I/O stack location of the IRP. Every IRP_MJ_SYSTEM_CONTROL request specifies a minor function code that identifies the requested WMI action.

All drivers must support IRP_MJ_SYSTEM_CONTROL requests by supplying a DispatchSystemControl routine.
Drivers that support Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) must handle IRP_MJ_SYSTEM_CONTROL requests by processing the minor function codes associated with this major function code. For information about the WMI minor function codes, see WMI Minor IRPs.
Drivers that do not support WMI by registering as a WMI data provider must pass IRP_MJ_SYSTEM_CONTROL requests to the next lower driver.
