I'm experiencing a problem with my 2 days old Y2P. Every time I approach my right hand toward the screen, without even touching it, it goes black and the laptop goes to sleep mode (see the pictures attached for a better idea of the gesture). I have to press the keyboard to turn it on again.
I figured that the system thinks that the screen was closed down and proceds with setting in place which was "sleep mode". I changed the setting of closing the laptop down to "do nothing", the problem is still there but instead of going to sleep mode the screen only goes dark and when a take of my hand the screen goes on again.
I don't know where the proximity sensor is situated or if the detection of the closed laptop is made by the proximity which would a very stupid/cheap way to do that.
Is anyone else having this issue?
Are you guys at Lenovo aware of this issue and is there any fix on the way?
Thank's to let me know if this issue software fixable or not so that I could return my laptop imediatly because it's very inconvegnant for a touch screen laptop.
Thank's in advance for the answers !
In these positions the screen goes black and the laptop goes to sleep mode.

I'm curious about all the bracelets on your wrist. Any of those have a magent or magent in the clasp or anything? I know there used to be some BBs that would enter sleep mode when they were placed in a holster that had a magnet. Try it without all the "decorations" and see if there's any change.

Indeed it was the magnet in my wrist band. I've just tryed to hold only the magnet over the keyboard and just above the volume buttons IT happend again. So the interaction is magnetic and not luminous.
Thank's Idchkn for the suggestion, problem soved !!!
