A Bodhisatta, good householder, is by nature an non-awakened being, is by nature of Bodhisattahood a worldling and by nature not even a Saint (Ariya-puggala). Someone still strong attached to the world, busy with it, still with huge debts.
It's by practicing the Dhamma rightly, cutting away all craving by uprooting Avijja, not-knowing, that there is full awakening: "task is done, no more further for this world".
One of the first stage of Awakening has got a view on what release means.
As for details on the qualities of awakened persons of the 4 kinds, sure the table, generous given by Bhante Nyanadassana, is very usefull to get more into details: Mental Fetters, etc. Abandoned by Each Path-Knowledge
To take a little on a case like in the "Sutra" quoted in another answer. If it is the case that somebody has firm faith into the Sublime Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha (the non-fake-one) and has heared the good (not-corrupted) Dhamma of the Arahats, even if not gained awakening yet, has firm faith in this Dhamma, or investigated if in ways that he approves totally, such a person can not leave this present existance before gaining awakening of the first stage, see it for himself. They are often called "low stream-enter". If one likes to call such a person, let's say a serious "Buddhist", Bodhisatta, in this context such would be valid.
It's not possible that someone, having gained the conditions for awakening, heared the Dhamma and aware of the Gems, and not stupid or grave corrupted, would turn on bond to Samsara, stay a worldling after on. For he is already bond to full Awakening within max. 7 further lifes, 3 paths, 4 fruits.
And what is the good Dhamma of the Arahats, which binds beings toward liberation?
