    Hello All,

    I've just received my Incase magazine jacket for ipad2.

    Does anyone know, if this case works with auto lock? I've googled and found some ppl finding similar problems. Also restarted many times.

    Even after setting auto lock feature to on, and sleep time to never or 10 minutes, nothing works. It's as if this feature is not on.

    Anyone had a similar problem?

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    From reading the iLounge review of the Incase magazine jacket for iPad 2, does this cover not have a magnet which would put the iPad to sleep automatically, or wake it. The reason being, that the cover does not have a magnet to interact with the iPad 2 magnetic sleep sensor

    If the cover had a magnet, than under Settings->General, a third option would appear: iPad Cover Lock/Unlock (right below Passcode lock).
    Changing Auto-lock and Passcode-lock has no influence on the automatic wakeup and sleep settings.

    If you wanted to have this cover to automatically wake up the iPad, you would need to add a magnet manually to it.

    jail broken?

    or an app that is running in the background is preventing it from autolocking

    It does not have a magnetic sleep sensor, so this must be the reason.

    @wytey: No, it's not jail broken. Too complicated to handle, at least for me :)
