A: "I need to rest tonight. Otherwise, I'll be too tired tomorrow morning."

"I'm going to continue until I'm told otherwise."

Otherwise is similar to "or else", which I'll add to the first example sentence so you can see: "I need to rest tonight. Or else I'll be too tired tomorrow morning."

In the second sentence, "otherwise" is used to show a disagreement or (even an alternative): "I'm going to continue until I'm told to stop". Being told "to stop" is the alternative to continuing.
