Default Phone turns on when placed on laptop

My nexus 5 turn on and off when i place it on my laptop near touchscreen, maybe wireless charging detects something? i don't know. Does anyone else experienced something like this? Is it bad for the phone?

Some laptops have NFC?

XDA needs a "2nd Post Wiki" automatically generated in each thread. Such a thread wiki has proven effective on other sites to cut down on useless thread clutter and questions which have been answered repeatedly. The idea is simple. A community-editable wiki is inserted immediately beneath the OP to address current issues relating to the topic. Most OP/devs don't have the time to continually update their OP to address ongoing issues. Let's let the community do that for them!

Could be hall effect. This uses magnet proximity to turn the screen on and off as used in flip cases.

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!
