    It is as if it is in standby mode.

    Power tubes are lit but not hot and no sound.

    I was playing it when it happened and the sound just kept getting quieter until it was gone, like if I had turned on the standby while I kept playing.

    Is there an internal fuse in there or something that heats the tubes?

    there is a fuse. if it is blown, the tubes won't glow.
    just in case, did you check the speaker cable?
    did you try a different instrument cable and/or different guitar?

    I would check those power tubes. Swap them put if you can.

    Replace power tubes 1st. If no resolution, put back in the old ones and do the same with the 3 12AX7's, putting back in the originals once each one is determined not to be the problem.

    90% of these kind of problems are usually tubes. That said, if it turns out to not be tubes, an authorized Fender tech should be able to reference most likely other failure points and get it fixed pretty quick and easy.

    If changing the tubes doesn't help I would check your heater voltage all the way to the last pre amp tube.
