If I put my phone on my notebook's left corner, it shuts down. Can anybody give me reliable explanation as to why this is happening??

Most likely, there is a magnet that tells the notebook when the lid is closed. If your phone or mobile device also has a magnet, it can activate it. I know this first hand with my old Blackberry and my MacBook Pro when I first bought it.
