It's probably being caused by an ACPI generated event when you close the
lid. Try stopping the acpid process and see if it still does it:
If this service is not running though, you probably won't be able to
poweroff by simply pressing the power button (if you use that method),
so have a look in /etc/acpi at the config files to see if there's an
event to handle the lid closing and comment it out.
Lastly, the events might be being handled directly by the
gnome-power-manager, so check your settings for that. I'm not familiar
enough with gnome to say where to look :)
