I'ts an Acer R5 2 in 1. Not terribly happy with this anti-tamper method (that's the only thing I can figure for having such a system).

Three possible cures.
1/ Use a slightly longer screw.
2/ Drop a mall piece of plastic down the screwhole, or, for the adventurous or the electronically well trained,
3/ Solder a bridge across the switch teminals to permanently short it out.
Actually #3 requires that you determine if the switch is opened or closed by the screw. More adventurousness required ! Most likely it is normally open and closed by the screw, in which case shorting it out would work.
