Laptop waking from sleep when closed - bad for screen?

Hi all,


I was just wondering if you can advise on something.


My new laptop keeps waking itself from sleep in my bag. As far as I can tell, the screen comes on and does not turn off and the laptop stays on until it runs out of battery (about 9 hours). This causes the screen and laptop in general to get very hot, as it is in my bag and in a laptop sleeve.


I wondered if it was bad for the screen to get this hot? I know the components can handle it, otherwise the laptop would shut down. But I am worried about the screen.


It is the Asus UX303LA-R4338H. It has a LCD panel (matte, non-touch, if that makes a difference). Windows 8.1.


As for the waking up: I think it might have been waking after 3 hours to go in to hibernate, so I have turned off hibernation in power settings (but I am yet to try this latest change). I have no tasks scheduled to wake the laptop, all devices bar the keyboard aren't allowed to wake it, can't be woken by internet, etc. What is curious is that it when this happens it does not sleep after 15 minutes or turn off the display after 5 minutes, as per my settings. Does anyone have any ideas on this?


Summary:-
1. Is this bad for laptop screen/elsewhere on the laptop to be on, in a closed environment, and this hot for 9 hours?
2. Any further ideas why it might be turning on and then not sleeping after 15 minutes?


THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

It's definitely not good for the battery. Getting hot in the bag isn't god either. If it was me I would do a full shut down instead of sleep mode.

Thanks for the reply!

So not bad for the monitor or other components, then? Just bad for battery life span? It's only happened twice, as far as I know, so hopefully there won't be long-term damage.

Can anything else actually wake up the computer from a full shut down if I have all wake timers and scheduled tasks off?

Turn off in BIOS/UEFI any thing related to: Wake Up on Lan; also do that within Windows OS.

No, like I said "Getting hot in the bag isn't good either." Hugh temps are bad for everything if the laptop is in an enclosed space.
