In my case, the problem is related to "Stable Mode." This is one of the default power/battery management modes for the Y2P. Under Power Options in the control panel, it literally says that this mode prevents the computer from entering sleep mode. I have no idea why.
I changed to having it hibernate instead of sleep. I'll also try "daily mode" instead, because the computer has started to overhead in stable mode, which is weird. Previously, (before recent firmware updgrade?), stable mode ran very cool.

This morning my W520 woke up at 3 in the morning to install Windows updates and did not go back to sleep for a solid hour. The computer was still warm when I fished it out of the bag at 8 AM. This is a serious issue! I'm pretty sure my computer's circuitry will protect the computer but if nothing else, this is a fire hazard! It's the Lenovo power management software. There SHOULD BE a giant button with a prominent label that says "Never wake from hibernation on system events". You have to turn them off per device in the Windows device manager. In my case, the wired connection had been enabled - I never use that usually and had neglected to turn off waking on ethernet events. As someone pointed out above, the best check is to issue the command in a text console
powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
Go to every listed device in Device Manager, select the Power Management tab, and disable waking on events.

I hope that this hasn't already been answered in this forum and that I'm not kicking a dead horse here...but I'm having this problem, too. I discovered that if I have the laptop closed and I apply a little pressure to the center of the back of the monitor, it wakes up from sleep mode. So the reason that the laptop keeps waking up in my backpack in likely due to the pressure of my books in my backpack, even though my laptop and books are in separate pockets.

I also have metal clasps on my bag, and I tried your experiement and it caused it to turn on! (though it happens just over the orientation-lock button) This has been frustrating for so long, good find.... now what to do about it. Since it happens around the orientation button, and it's in the middle of the laptop AND I have two clasps on both sides of the middle of my messenger bag, changing the orientation won't do anything..... it happens when placing the magnet over the top OR bottom of the button.... arrrgghhh
p.s. putting pressure on the lid (pressing keys) while the laptop is closed has no effect. It stays asleep.
p.s.s. since I use bitlocker and a super long password, hybernation is NOT an option.

this is just ridiculous how ignorant lenovo is. the last mouse driver update for this thing was in 2013, probably when laptop came out.
It is the mouse that keeps moving when lid is closed and wakes the laptop up. When i connect it to tv to watch movie the mouse keeps moving and clicking around when the lid is closed

I attempted to use the AHK solution (suggested by @indest) but commands sent to DevManView do not disable my keyboard unless I fully reboot the computer after sending the command. Seeing as the computer does not reboot when entering sleep, the AHK scripted solution does not work for my frustrating Y2P.
How can I disable the keyboard from having the ability to wake my computer while my computer is asleep? Running
powercfg /devicequery wake_armed
reports that no devcies are enabled to wake my computer from sleep. How is the keyboard still waking my computer during sleep?

I'm also having this issue (where "squeezing" the laptop presses the keyboard & causes it to wake). I've implemented the AutoHotKey script, but like BobbyLink has noted, "DevManView.exe /disable "Standard PS/2 Keyboard"" doesn't actually immediately disable the keyboard - so it doesn't solve the problem. i.e. I can execute the DevManView command, and continue using the keyboard just fine (even though it does show it as "disabled."
I'm both baffled and dissappointed that four years later, Lenovo is still releasing laptops that suffer from this blatantly obvious problem. Mine is a Yoga 700-11ISK, and I've actually had damage due to it getting red-hot in my backpack when it was supposed to be asleep. Really really sad.
