Screen won't shut off when fully closed
I was seeing the same kind of thing here. I configured my PBP to shut off the screen when the lid is closed. If I close the lid quickly the screen never turns off. However, if I close it slowly and leave a 1cm gap (finger gap) at the top then the magnet seems to be read by the sensor and the screen goes off. If I allow it to close completely then the screen comes back on as if it senses that the lid is opened again.

I tried with a small neodymium magnet beside the backspace key and it was very reliably turning off/on again. So, as a hack I taped the neodymium magnet with some electrical tape to the edge of the screen near where the stock magnet is located most likely. It sticks to the other magnet. Now the screen reliably goes goes off and on when opening / closing the lid.

I noticed that the neodymium magnet needed to be a little lower than where it was sticking to the other magnet. Maybe .5cm or so. So, maybe there's a slight misalignment of the magnet from the factory?
