Screen won't shut off when fully closed

I'm wondering if anyone else has the same problem I do as I haven't heard anyone mention it.

When I put the screen all the way down it stays on.

When the screen is about 1 to 2 inches from being closed it turns off but when I shut it all the way it turns back on.

When I open the screen it turns off during the first 1 to 2 inches then comes back on when I open it on further.

It acts like it's a hardware issue? I haven't taken it apart yet. Just wondering if anyone else is having this issue?

I have set it to only turn the screen off when the screen is closed not to sleep or power down the computer.

Seems like this issue is also keeping it from being able to sleep/suspend (which I prefer to do manually).

Similar for me, recent receipt PineBookPro w/Manjaro. Screen does not shutoff when I close it. Though for mine, I don't see it shutting off at any point as I close it. Behaves like it could be hardware sensor though I do not know how to verify that. (eventually it times out and shuts off like when open)
