Laptop suddenly turning off when leaning on keyboard area. HELP!!!


Nov 18, 2017
I have a odd problem, I was playing a game last night and all of a sudden my laptop glitched up , froze and i held the power button to turn it off. I assumed maybe it might have overheated but this isnt the case. Today as i was browsing the internet looking for any answers to my problem, since it had recurred earlier today, (randomly turning off by itself whilst playing a game) i found that , it turned off when my wrist was leaning over on the bottom left section of the laptop, to the left of the mouse pad, so i can press the WSAD buttons. When i press down where the left bottom side of keyboard is, it instantly turns off. What might be the reason for this? Have i loosened a power connection by constantly leaning on that side with my hand? My laptop specs are :
Windows 10, Lenovo B5050,
Any suggestions would be appreciated thanks.

No way to tell for certain but you're on the right track. Could be shorting something out, pulling on a connection causing it to momentarily disconnect, etc suggestion would be to not lean on that section of the laptop.
