    I used the pass code test, thanks to this great tip, because I believed I had a defective case. The case is defective and will be returned tomorrow. guess I'll have to stick with my few months old functional case. Thanks!

    None of this applies to the new iPad correct? Instead of a smart cover lock there is a restrictions button. I have tried everything to get this thing to go to sleep with the case close.

    This is a direct quote from the new "iPad User Guide for iOS 5.1" (available free in the iBook store)

    Use an iPad Smart Cover: In Settings, go to General > iPad Cover Lock/Unlock, then tap On.

    Ah- herein lies the problem: I have a Targus case and not a Smart Cover. Maybe a phone call to Targus first thing in the morning. You would think they would want to handle issues quickly, so soon after the release so as not to hurt the sales of their new stocks!
    I saw this as well, thanks.

    This was my IPad 2 and it was my Caseen Smart Cover case, which was defective. It was not my device.
