By design. What if you want to set up a long (timewise) shot, then close the screen to conserve battery and to prevent others looking into the screen?
The camcorder will turn off when it is not recording (in pause mode) and you close the screen. This is very convenient, open the LCD, shoot, close the LCD. I am surprised Canon did not copy this approach.
