RE: What, me worry?

Did you try powering it off and on again from the rear switch? I believe the amp performs a self-test when you power it on from the rear switch, and if the self test fails the LED will flash.

On my Simaudio amps, the LED will also flash if the protection circuit kicks in. I've had this happen to me a couple times when I touched the amp after walking across the carpet in slippers during the winter and got a static electricity shock.

I don't think it will wake from standby if there is a fault or certain operating parameters are not within limits, so if it happens again I wouldn't ignore it.
