I have a Yoga 14" Ultrabook and it will shut itself off when you move it also (with lid open) hold it near the thinkpad logo on the right side.
I have taken the keyboad and bottom off and could not find any loose connections or damage.
Any ideas? Been searching internet with no luck. is it a SSD thing maybe it thinks it's being dropped?
Any help would be great

Lenovo ThinkPads has a feature where it would turn off the hard drive when it detects it's being dropped. But I don't think that's present on SSDs because they don't rely on mechanical platers. I'd suggest getting the unit repaired with Lenovo.

Please confirm your specific model so that we can be sure you're post is in the proper forum. If you would post the model number usually from the underside (no serial number, please), that would be helpful.

Lenovo has known this for a long time and you better discover it before your warranty runs out because they will not honor anything about this issue. My laptop has at least 4 points on it that cause it to shut off. Doesn't matter if I'm moving it from desk to desk, to my briefcase or actually trying to use it as a tablet becasue it's so sensitive it's almost useless.
This has been my worst computer purchase in 26 years. I'm really shocked.
