May be time for a new computer.

Unless it's something simple like a blown out power supply or a bad connection where the power cord plugs into the computer, in which case you could find a substitute power supply. It takes some instrumentation (like a voltmeter for starters) to track down a problem like this.

Something happened while you where away after turning it off

Most likely something like a Big Power Spike, Thunderstorm or similar caused a Power Spike to enter the NB and damage it.

As to how to proceed from here it all depends on how old this Vaio is and how Important the Data on the Drive is. But as this is a Vaio you'll need to pay someone to at the very least inspect and report on the cost of Repairs and also possibly remove the HDD and then pay someone to recover any Data on it.

With the Vaio's that I have worked on you need to pull the M'Board to get tot he HDD so they are not the easiest things to play with.
