I have a problem with my new windows 8 laptop. Each time I put it on sleep or Hibernate, it turns off or restart. And the same thing happens when I close the lid! Why does that happen?? How can I stop it?

Thank you,

Regarding the close lid go to Control Panel>Power Options>Change plan settings>Change advance power settings>Power buttons and lid>Lid close action. You can choose action to perform.
