Since some people may still wonder whether (control) State is important or not, here is what I received from DigitalOcean's support team:
Thanks for reaching out to us. I see that your current Droplet appears to be powered off, yet is responding to ping.
I've adjusted your Droplet to show the correct power status. Sorry about that!
If you see this issue in in the future, a "Power on" issued from the button in your DigitalOcean control panel should be safe to perform. Let us know if you have any questions!
