I have a Yoga 700-11ISK, and would frequently put it to sleep, put it in my backpack, & pull it out hours later to find it RED hot & the battery 90% drained. After wasting an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out why it kept doing this (and damaging other items in my backpack due to the extreme heat), I came across this thread:
The problem is that the keyboard remains active even when the lid is closed, so if it gets squeezed in such a way that the screen internally presses a key, it will silently wake itself up. Apparently Lenovo has spent the past four years churning out laptop after laptop that suffer from this defect, never thinking to learn from their mistakes. Here are more:
I've tried the hack/script solution proposed in the first thread, but it doesn't work (the keyboard can't be disabled by DevManView without a reboot). The other threads apply to the Yoga 900, which I guess Lenovo fixed with a BIOS update.
This issue is such a problem that I've literally stopped carrying the laptop around...which was the whole point in buying it. Please release a BIOS update immediately, so that I can actually start using my laptop again. Four years should be sufficient time to realize that this is not a functional design.

Hello, I have the same problem with my yoga 700 - 14isk. It heats up in my backpack and when i get it out i have little battery left which is very annoying and unacceptable. It is a shame that Lenovo just fixed the issue in their most expensive line (900 series) and forgot about the rest of their products, even though the problem is basically the same. I expect a fix in the bios or something of that sort soon. For now I will have to keep spreading the opinion that Lenovo does not polish out their products and is releasing them in the middle of the production process. For instance, I had a problem with screen ghosting out of the box, which I had to spend hours on solving.
