    No, it's just because some people like it halfway open

    I think it might have something to do with the little flap that flips up on top when its all the way open. When its sliding back there's nothing that has to set into place, but when you are closing it it has to seat back down and it probably stops just to make sure it sits firmly. Might be total BS but I dunno why anyone would want it half shut intentionally, its really loud
