The title sums it up.
I have an RMA for a refund in progress, but wanted to see if anyone has any ideas before I ship it away.
I have verified it is the lid switch, because I can get it to stop if I hold a magnet just right around the switch, which is to the left of the webcam and mic.
Right out of the box, "L" key was bad on the keyboard; it doesn't register unless it's hit just right. I was dealing with it for now and was going to get a warranty part to fix it, but now this happened...

I would set a small screw on the palmrest to see if the magnet is really in place. (center, at the front right below the place the lid switch is) I wonder if the box was dropped in shipping affecting the keyboard and dislodging the magnet.

Sounds like a bad Hall sensor. (magnetic switch)
