Probably a bad switch. If the laptop is still under warranty, ask Lenovo to fix it. if it is out of warranty, a repair shop should be able to fix it.

If you don't want to pay for a repair, don't turn the laptop off. Set the computer to suspend (sleep) on closing the lid. Opening the lid, pressing a key, or pressing the Fn key will usually wake it up from sleep. As long as your battery is good, you will never need to turn off the laptop.

While the laptop is suspended, everything is turned off except the CPU and memory. Those are powered just enough to keep the current state of the computer intact (which is why you need to have a battery). Waking from sleep is then just a matter of powering the rest of the computer up, and is much faster than booting up.
