Depends my amp you switch main power then turn off standby basically. So if the power switch is off then there is no power. But if you had the amp on and in standby then you lost some tube time.

Your fine. You'll just have to replace your tubes 96 hours earlier

Actually, might as well just replace them now. How old are they?

I think you've let it warm up long enough.

If it was on standby then the only thing that was turned on was the heaters. Whether this will shorten the life of the tubes is hard to say. Heaters blow out more often when you first turn them on than they do after they've been running continuously. Light bulb filaments do the same thing. They don't usually blow when the light's been left on. More often, they blow when you turn them on - a blink and pop, and they're dead.

The initial surge current seems to stress tube filaments more than anything else. Without any plate voltage, there wasn't any current going through the rest of the tube, so the other elements shouldn't have degraded any.
