Have you tried System Restore? If not familiar... Start Button ---> Help ---> System Restore ---> "Restore my computer to an earlier date" --> choose an appropriate date, maybe a few days earlier than the problem.
Re-boot and see if works! If you are ceratin that the problem arose simply from hibernating, then restoring should do the trick!
If you has been installed the right drivers, it is hardware problem. Try to use the factory touchpad program for your sony touchpad and see what happen (not only the driver, also the program touchpad software)
just above the touchpad you will find a small button just press it .and you will notice it is disable so no need to do any changes from control panel.if you want to enable it again press the button......
