Depends on the context.

One meaning could refer to a community or group of people living their lives as they used to do 100 years ago. Time stood still, they didn't change a bit and they practice the same traditions. 

Another way to use that phrase is when something you are experiencing is really intense. soooo intense you feel like everything around you moves in slow motion or just stop moving.  Ex.

'Time stand still -- I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
See more of the people and the places that surround me now' (aaaaand that's a song ^^)
