Definitely try and get the code.
Could be the start of an intermittent problem that, if not dangerous, will drive you nuts.
A limpy would be bad enough but complete drop out looks a bit deadly.

Petrol or Diesel?
If its diesel I'm going to take a wild guess at suction control valve
The vehicle will clear your fault light if it has 3 goo startups without detecting the fault, but as already said it will still be stored in the ECU.

lots of potential problems can cause the limp mode.
if the limp has occurred it most likely has sensed something and will reoccur
a scan tool can be very useful, not only does it read the code, the code can be reset- handy in the certain situations like out bush, don't have to turn the car off and hope the code resets.

If you over boosted for a sec when you accelerated with the cruise on, it will typically drop out of cruise.
Learnt this when experimenting with boost settings.

Does it hook into the loud pedal if it's an after market kit?
