    Has anyone else noticed that you can't put your iPad onto the keyboard dock when it's in the Apple iPad cover? I was hoping that it would work, but the cover is just thick enough to prevent the iPad from going down onto the connector. It's rather a pain to take the iPad out of the cover because it does not slide at all well...the cover has almost a rubbery type feel to it which makes sliding difficult (which in most cases is a good thing!) By the way, I don't mean trying to put the iPad on the dock with the front case cover folded around the back...I tried with the cover just opened up to the side. Has anyone made a cutout on the bottom back so that it will fit down onto the connector?

    all docks wont work that the ipad is in a case.
    same goes with the iphones and ipods.

    The lip on the apple case is deliberate to give it a degree of crash protection.

    That said you could trim some of it away with a scalpel or sharp blade of some sort without too much damage.

    Good luck and post a photo if it works :)

    I have seen a review where someone did cut out a piece of the Apple case in order to use the Apple dock, so it is possible.
