Power Light Blinks Orange on Gateway PC

I placed my keyboard on standby last night... when I came to use it first thing this morning it seemed to be off but the power light was blinking orange. I had to unplug it for a bit before it booted sucessfully. Then I left the PC for about 10 mins. and it was 'off' again and the light was blinking orange once more.
I have no idea what to do to stop it from doing this. Please help! If you need any more details let me know.

Go to the Windows control panel, select power management, see if standby or sleep mode are enabled. If so, disable them. That should stop the PC from doing that.

most LG have a "vacation switch" on the bottom right hand side of the set very near that standby light.

it is placed poorly, where you can accidently click when grabbing the TV to move it or swivel it.

it is a toggle switch, a "master power" switch.

you may have bumped it to the off position. flip the switch, your standby light will come back on.
