You will need to take a look at your motherboard book it will tell you what the light means.

Turning Off isn't good enough

You need to disconnect the Mains Lead for about 30 seconds to clear the system. When this happens the M'Board gets scrambled as it is always powered from the Power Supply.

You need to remove the Mains Power to allow the M'Board/CPU to reset and it should work OK.

Power Supply

Take Smeg's advice and unplug. If that doesn't work, try another power supply.

The LED shows presence of 5VDC standby power.
