In brief: Hypotension

Orthostatic hypotension most commonly volume related -- that means you are not well hydrated -- however there are other causes of postural hypotension that warrant more testing and evaluation -- if the problem is not remedied by simple hydration then you should seek medical attention.

The significance has to do with the problems caused by dropping blood pressure with position change.
This can be very problematic for people. See the following wiki for more details: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/orthostatic_hypotension.
