I get a blue screen error of "driverirql_not_less_equal" when my laptop monitor dims.

Specs:
OS: Windows 8 Professional (64 bit)
Intel i7 2640M
8 Gb Ram
1T HD

The attached screen capture is the location of my error.

This is probably either a BIOS problem, or a video driver problem. It's also possible you have a hardware fault, but try updating your BIOS and video card drivers.
