Is it using acpi or apm? If I remember most of redhat used apm as default. Been about 2 years sense using redhat 9. To test try this first. Run the command ' service acpid stop '. Close lid and see what happens. If no change try this ' service apmd stop '. If it is apm then I am not much help here. If you don't need the feature then it can be disabled from boot by issuing the command ' chkconfig --level 345 acpid off ' and same for apm.

If using acpi then you can do the following.
If using acpi, look in /etc/acpi/events. post what is there. I do not use default acpid packages for notebook.
This events trigger the actions in /etc/acpi/actions. Look throught the net for more info on the subject.

Lets stop there and see what you have and then see where to go from here.
