And you think it is not the case? Why?
We cannot help because you have not given a reproducible example (What is w and gp?), which the posting guide asks you to do.

Please also format your code in a way that is easy for others to read, including some blanks and without all those ">" and "+":

saeqn <- function(s, l)
{

     p <- exp(-l$gp$lambda + s) * l$gp$c
     k11 <- (l$gp$mu * (l$gp$lambda^2) * l$gp$c -
             s * l$gp$lambda * l$gp$c * l$gp$mu +
             l$gp$mu * l$gp$lambda) * p
     k12 <- -l$gp$mu * l$gp$lambda -
            s^2 + 2 * s * l$gp$lambda - (l$gp$lambda^2)
     k13 <- k11 + k12
     k14 <- (l$gp$lambda - s) *
            (-l$gp$mu * s - s * l$gp$lambda + s^2 +
             l$gp$mu * l$gp$lambda * p)
     k1 <- -k13 / k14
     k1 - l$t

}

s <- sapply(seq(along = w), function(i) {

     uniroot(saeqn, lower = -5000, upper = 0.01036597923,
             l = list(t = w[i], gp = gp))$root
     }

)
