Since it is an event receiver, it must always be active.  However, when it is not actually processing an event, it should not be doing anything other than sitting around.  In other words there should be no CPU loading when it is idle.  It will occupy some memory.

According to Microsoft,

... The WinRM Service provides access to WMI data and enables event collection. Event collection and subscription to events require that the service is running

So the very least that will happen is that the system will no longer collect information about system problems, and Event Viewer will be useless.

So I can't recommend disabling this service.
