Screen won't shut off when fully closed

Sometimes, it doesn't.  If I then lift the screen one or two inches, it shuts off again.  Then I can close it all the way, and it stays off.

But most of the time, it shuts off.  It usually takes a few seconds after I close it all the way.

I suspect there is some software switch that sometimes doesn't work.  Just like my bluetooth mouse sometimes doesn't work.  Usually I have to reboot, then delete the mouse from Bluetooth and add it again.  

Things here are a bit finicky, not as stable as a machine that costs five or ten times as much, but I believe the hardware is fine, it's just a software something or other.

That would be great if it is "a software something or other" though what, and how to verify ?

Is there a Manjaro expert who could address this ? I am happy to run a test or three if I knew what to look for and where ?
