In your post, you mentioned that you recently updated Windows 10. Did you have this issue prior to the update?  Have you tried uninstalling the update?  If the issue still persists, then a complete OS re-install may be needed.

Hi

I found what my issue was and why my laptop was turning on when I closed my lib. The problem was hardware related. I opened the casing of my laptop and found that one wire was out of its allocated position.

In fact, that wire was just on top of the power panel. so, whenever i was trying to close the lib somehow the wire pressed the power panel and my laptop turned on. I re positioned that wire to its correct place and the problem is gone.
