Lower speed when laptop screen closed!

Got a real weird one here, I have plugged my lappy to HD tv via HDMi, Now, when I do speedtest with laptop closed I get 10mb knocked off speed test. But when i open laptop I get full speed.
Any Ideas?

Is the laptop using wireless? Laptops often have wireless antennae that are wires in the lid, so the antennae might be in a worse position with the lid closed.
