I upgraded my Windows 8 Pro to Windows 8.1 Pro. It is working fine except for when I'm logging in and waiting to enter password, if I close my laptop (not shut down, just fold), it automatically shuts down my system.

Is it bug?

No, it is not a bug, I think the settings changed in the power options of you laptop. Click Win+W and write in the search power options. On the left you should see Choose what closing the lid does click on it. Now change the options and your laptop wan't shutdown when it is folded.
