    I'm thinking about buying an iPad 2 in a week or two, but I was wondering, can the magnet feature be turned off? I dont really like the aspect of it being automatically on when i remove the cover, is there a setting where you can still remove the smart cover (or any other magnet controlled cover) and then be at the 'slide to unlock screen'? i dont mind the feature that when you put the cover on it goes to sleep, but not the open to wake. Can someone please verify for me?

    And second, could anyone refer me the best smart cover alternative, that also protects the back aswell?

    is it possible so that you can have one off and one on?
    like when you put the smart cover on, it goes to sleep,but when you open it up, it stays asleep for you to unlock with slide?

    If you can think of a way to deactivate magnets on anything period, let alone an iPad 2, I would def be interested in hearing it....

    You either need the cover before the feature appears or take a small magnet and drag it down the right side od the iPad till the screen turns off. Then the feature will be visible.

    It also works if you swipe your headphones down the right side of the screen.
