Have you checked with Sony for updated drivers for your laptop?

Re: My Laptop Screen
It probably defaulted to hibernate and requires you to tap the power button
to resume.

RE: My Laptop Screen
This is a problem with all people who use windows vista on a laptop. It is a
problem with windows vista's driver allocation and here is how to fix it;

1. Open ”Computer management”
2. Open “Device Manager”
3. Expand “System Devices”
4. Right Click “ACPI Lid”
5. Click “Update Driver”
6. Click “Browse Computer”
7. Click “Let me pick from a list on my computer”
8. Un tick “Show Compatible Hardware”
9. Scroll to the bottom of the right hand box and click “Volume Manager”
10. Click “Yes” when Windows prompts you with security warnings
11. Reboot when Vista prompts you to do so
