Display turns off

was moving the laptop from the kitchen counter to my desk for a zoom meeting and everytime the laptop touched my desk the screen would turn off and act like i locked it, anyone else experience this? oh it turns back on if i pick it up, its only when i place it on the desk

Does the desk have any magnets in it/on it?

The magnetic sensor for detecting when the lid is closed is on the left of the keyboard.


You’re 100000% correct, apparently the guy who had the desk before me put magnets into the edge of the desk for a reason iv yet to figure out.

When I was typing my response I thought it was weird - why would there be magnets in a desk? But all the symptoms were there.
