Did you use the Toshiba upgrade assistant or a generic version of Windows 8?

If you installed Win8 using a generic version, did you install all the Win 8 drivers for the L755? Win7 drivers will cause problems in Win8.

Toshiba's have a CMOS setting to power up when when the lid is opened, verify how yours is configured. I own that particular L755 and my default BIOS settings DOESN'T power up when raising the lid and I applaud it since it isn't equipped with any or least configurable hard drive protection and could possibly result in a system ignorantly powered on then moved abruptly enough to suffer HDD shock.

Regarding your question about whether your power issue is HW or software, it really doesn't matter since Windows and BIOS can set power options that are persistent among different operating systems or might conflict with eachother.

It's uncertain and provocative when I read your interest in determining where the fault is regarding your system or laptop and compels me to ask you, so what ?
And even if you were able to attribute the disagreeable power scheme to one party or both, what are you gonna do about it ? ...tough guy.

Thank you for replay I understand your point, but what is important to me is just to know if it is fault or my computer not Compatible with Windows 8, for Knowledge only.

Its not a hardware fault.
Its an future which is part of Win 8 system.

More details are explained here:
+Why does my Windows 8 notebook start automatically when opening the display lid?+

There is a option in Toshiba settings -> boot area
Its calling: *Panel open Power ON*
If this is enabled, the notebook will power on if you open the lid
