It'll be fine. Just turn it off when you get home.
Feel free to call me Kyle.

just play through it. it should be alright, you might need a new valve but they're easy to get.
but nothing should have happened

You shouldn't even lose a valve from leaving it on standby all day. I mean, it's going to be hot when you get home, but I can't see it realistically causing any damage. I've left my amp on through a combination of standy and playing for hours at a time, with no harm whatsoever.
Feel free to call me Kyle.

its just keeping the tubes warm. if you leave it on all day its not gonna damage them, but now they have about a day less lifespan (not bad at all)

was it just Standby and no Power? Should be fine. When you get home, just turn off the standby. Then turn on the power. Wait an extra minute or so if it makes you feel better, turn the Standby on and Rock On. I'm sure it will be good to go.

Signs tho might be things like - only plays at half normal volume, cracked or discolored tubes, things like that but that is usually only if say the power was left on for extended periods.

I've done the exact same thing with my amp before, it was fine. If it helps I panicked a bit too
A dwarf might hear you. What then?
