all advanced power settings are set to 'do nothing' when closing the lid on laptop.

so, when I close the lid on my laptop when the laptop is on; after about 5 seconds it physcially turns off as if someone had held the power button down for 4 seconds.

if the laptop is off and i shut the lid, it turns on, then turns off in the same manner after about the 5 seconds again.

I cant see any settings anyhwere in the bios either that relates to shutting lid options.

any ideas ?

Try changing the power options to "stand-by" or something else, save the changes and see if it behaves the way it should. If it does, then change the options back to "Do Nothing".

Some hibernation problems are caused by corrupt video drivers. Might try replacing that
