Windows 7: Fn + F5/F6 Brightness control not working after sleep (Sony Vaio)

Fn + F5/F6 Brightness control not working after sleep (Sony Vaio)

Yeah, when I put my lappie to sleep and then wake it up again in the morning, it's usually on a lower birghtness setting and the function keys seems to have stopped working so I either have to reboot or adjust it via Start > Control Panel.

The volume control also fails to show up on the screen, but appears to still work.

Anyone know what I need to to do fix this? Sony Care Centre or something?
