ESX Node in Stand by mode

I have very basic knowledge on VMWare. We have ESX 4.0 with 2 ESX nodes. One being switched off. I had an alert "Host Connection state" that i double click to get details but instead it changed one of the switched off ESX nodes to Standby mode. This is live environment and i want to revert things back as they were.

Can you take a screenshot of what you're seeing so I can better assist you? I assume you're seeing this when you log into vCenter with your vSphere Client? When you log into vCenter, take a screenshot of what you're wanting help with. Thanks.

When you mean standby mode do you really mean maintenance mode?  Just choose exit standby mode.
Usually host connection state means something's gone wrong network wise - check out that side of things (you don't provide enough details for us to provide instructions).
I really fail to see the point of having two ESX servers - and then one switched off - there's no redundancy.
