The issues you are experiencing are related to your use of the legacy "IPS" layer.  This layer was intended to be used only by R77.30 and earlier gateways and will work with newer gateways, but is inappropriate for use with a gateway running R80.10+ or later.  This IPS layer reflects the inherent limitations in the IPS feature on R77.30 and earlier gateways; the IPS capabilities and management were significantly overhauled and unified with the rest of Threat Prevention in R80.10+.

You've already encountered one of those limitations: R77.30 and earlier gateways did not have "Inactive" as a possibility for an exception so while it will let you set that in the SmartConsole, you get Detect anyway.  That type of exception will work correctly once you get rid of the legacy IPS layer.   Check out the two threads below for the procedure, and I've also included the page from my R81.20 IPS/AV/ABOT Immersion self-guided video course discussing the legacy IPS layer.
