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?

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