Thought I had answered this but here goes again. Many sensors are multi function and switched on and off selects function a power cut can change function selected you need to read instruction to see if your sensor is of this type and the function has changed.
When using non viable light some things are transparent and it would depend what you covered sensor with.

Do read the instructions that came with the sensor as they are not all the same a cloth will allow some light through and may not disable any infrared movement sensor function also it does take some time the is normally a delay built in to stop one odd cloud seeing it off so could take up to 15 min to activate.
This should all be in the instructions that came with it including how to switch off and on to change functions.
You need to read instructions.
