Some how, my Sony Vaio SZ650 n/c has lost the video or monitor driver. I still have high resolution, but I am unable to go into "Sleep" mode when I close my lid. It says on 100% of the time and is draining my battery. Any ideas?

Under the screen saver > power >advanced area, under "When I close the lid of my portable computer", my only option is "DO NOTHING."

Well I tried system restore and it didn't work. Looks like I lost hibernation suport. I tried running the command at the command prompt to invoke hibernation, but it errored out stating my laptop does not support hibernation
