Why does my laptop fall asleep when I sit it on my desk?
Just as the question reads, when I place my laptop down on my desk, sometimes it immediately goes to sleep. I pick it up, it turns back on, I sit it down, it turns back off. This makes no sense to me. I have made sure that the fans are not being blocked (the fans are not under the laptop, but along the back side) so it is not an overheating problem. As far as I can tell, there is no sensor of any kind underneath it that would tell it to sleep when covered. That would actually be the stupidest design choice for a laptop. I have an Acer Predator Helios 300. It's relatively new, about two or three years old. I've never dropped it or anything so I really don't know what the problem could be. I've also searched everywhere on the internet for someone with a similar problem to mine, but can't find any answers.

Do you have anything on or in your desk that includes a strong magnet?
A lot of laptops use a magnetic sensor to detect when the screen is closed & trigger sleep mode.
An external magnet in the same region could have the same effect.
