The sidestand switch signals to your bike if you try to take off with the sidestand still down - the engine will cut out and you'll not go anywhere at all. Which is a good thing, at least until you put the sidestand up again.
If the engine isn't cutting out with the stand down, that's most likely an electrical problem (although the switch could be stuck "in"). If the engine is cutting out with the stand up, most likely that's a mechanical problem (as in the switch isn't moving - try lubing it).
I have a spare for sale if all else fails.
