Has anyone found a folio sytle case fo the mini that actually works and fits? By works I mean does the sleep/wake function work? I have two and neither one of them is suitable!

ps. My Gumshell back cover from SecondShell works, but I want a folio case too.

I am liking this case from The Joy Factory. According to reports from the other forum, the sleep/wake works too. I currently use a similar one (Jisoncase) on my iPad 3 and I love it.

The top one is just like what I have, including the non functioning sleep/wake. The joy factory case is sweet. Thanks.

I got a case in today that both fits and works. Less than $10 shipped. By next week I should have two or the others. This one is good enough, but I do like variety.

I gotta admit....that $5 poetic slimline case is a fantastic deal. I got one today and it is a nice as the reviewer in the video above said. That is $5 shipped from amazon. Comes in several colors. The sleep/wake feature works as claimed. I just ordered another color.

While the cover above looks very nice and fits well, I'm not sure it is going to work out. The cover doesn't seem to like getting into either of the stand positions. I've been trying to work it to see if it will start to do better, but I'm not getting a sense that it will.

You gets what you pays for!!! At least it didn't cost $50. :rolleyes:

Yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about :) We only need the cover amd the sleep/wake feature. We never use these as a stand. I am sure when these are broken in, the stands will work better.

I wonder where my shipment is? I am waiting for the red & blue ones.
