Some power setting got messed up - monitor is going into standby when display turns off.

I'm not sure what happened, but something got messed up in the power settings. I have the display set to turn off after 5 minutes idle, and sleep after 15 minutes. But suddenly, the display won't come on again when I move the mouse around. Instead of the blue light, it goes to amber, which I think is standby mode for the monitor, and I have to hit the power off button, then on again, to get it back on.

What setting did I mess up?
