it isn't revving past enough when it is sitting with your foot off the accelerator, so it is likely to stall

wolfcamel  is right on.    In other words,

The engine has a shaft in the middle that spins so many revolutions per minute (RPM).     When you press the gas pedal, you cause the RPM to go faster, which accelerates the car.    When you are sitting at a stop light,   you are not pressing the gas, but you don't want the engine to stop, because you want to be ready to go on a green light,  so the car keeps the RPM at a minimum to keep the car ready to go.    That RPM number (600-1000rpm) when you are sitting still, with no foot on the gas pedal is your "idle".

If the Idle is too low, then like wolfcamel said, the car might stall or stop.

If you are talking about machinery (which I think you are) quote "I meant Low Idle"
Then the correct answer is that:
The machines engine will run at a "LOW IDLE" speed when the machinery is not engaged for use and will go into a "HIGH IDLE" speed when engaged to be used and thus, ready to accelerate when more power is required by the machinery.
