    I find navigating this site to introduce myself a bit confusing so I'm just going to ask my question and I also want to say 'thank you' to all of you for being there and willing to help.

    I want to buy a auto wakeup cover for my iPad1 and don't know where to get it. Lots of auto wakeup overs for all other iPads but not for the oldies -- iPad1.

    Thanks.

    P.S. I don't know what a Trackback is so am leaving that blank.

    The iPad1 can't use a Smart Cover-like cover because it has no magnets. So, you can't use the open/wake function. Sorry, but only the iPad2 on have that function.

    You can use a cover on the iPad, but it'll have to be connected to a case (cause it can't/won't connect to the iPad). Sorry.

    Thank you

    You have all been so helpful in putting the brakes on a futile search for an auto-wake cover for my iPad1. Thank you.
