a/c just stopped

so i recharged my system about 3 days ago, it had previously been converted to r-134a, yet i wanted to refresh it and bough a few o rings and new fittings. i had the system vaccumed for about 30 minutes. Then i left it for about 10 minutes with the gauge connected to see if the pressure came back , and it didnt.

I went ahead and recharged it, and by the second can thats when the blue button turned on, and the compressor did too and i had A/C.
However yesterday i was driving home and the a/c was on and in one of those moments that i spaced out and came back the blue button was off and so was the compressor.

i pressed it a few times, moved the vents position selectors to many different positions,checked fuses(replaced blown ones), and it still wont turn on. what could be the possible cause of the blue light and compressor not turning on. please help its florida and its hot.
