  1. Grammar is a bit dodgy.. Are you saying your laptop cuts on by its self?
  2. I think he's saying it turns on by itself. I'd check to see if it even turns off. I remember this from ages ago. Bios issue with the S states? Something like that. I'd try updating the bios. Or check the power options in 8. Make sure nothing funny is set to happen when lid is closed.
  3. I think that you are accidently pressing the sleep button instead of the shut down button.
    Again when you turn on your lappy, You don't need to press the PB. And your laptop starts off by itself.
    This is the case with Windows 8.
