Iam also wandering if over time the clip on the cover will leave a mark.
I am going to try it for a few days and see how it goes. I figure I am only out 1 beer at a blackhawks game
Other than that feature, how do you like it?

Well it looks like it's going to be the luck of the draw on whose sleep/wake feature works or doesn't. It is only $10 though so even if mine doesn't work, I'll be okay with pressing the power button.

I like the case, but I would not have paid that much more. I don't like having to unlock the left side grips to put into the 2 stand placements. The 6 holders/grips seem a little too big, but for $10 I cannot complain too much.

I do like the overall thinness of the case. I come from a Portenzo case that I have been using for about 1 year and I am looking to go thin. The look and feel are very nice and construction seems solid.

I hope mine does work.... It would totally suck if it didn't... When did you order yours ? How'd you get it so fast, ordered mine the same day OP posted with overnight shipping... And it's coming in today?

Just got mine. Fit and finish is flawless, what a beautiful case, I have owned a ton for iPad 1 and 2 and this looks the most professional by FAR and is everything I always wanted, so pleased. The iPad is rock solid in all the screen positions and typing positions.

That said the magnet on off does not work at all I am sad to say. I never used the feature even when I had a smart cover so it does not effect me, but the smart cover feature when I turned it on completely doesn't work at all, not even intermittent, so if you wanted that it is a deal breaker.

The case design and quality at this price, if you don't want the magnet on/off, is the best I have ever, ever seen.

Has anyone else here aside from the OP received the case with the sleep/wake function working?

My order is still being processed but will be cancelling if it's likely that the sleep/wake function doesn't work.

I received this email this morning, so it looks like they are being proactive with any defective case.
Dear Customers:

We are writing to thank you for your recent purchase of our "MoKo
Slim-Fit Folio Case for the New IPad (3rd generation)" and would like
to hear your feedback on our product and service. If there is anything
about this transaction or our case that did not meet your expectation,
please do let us know by REPLYING *TO THIS EMAIL and give us the
chance to make things right for you.

We do understand that many of you are concerned about the "Smart cover
auto sleep/wake" functionality of our case. We want to let you know
that our case does have the right design for new Ipad and the
sleep/wake function should work well , as tested by us and confirmed
by some reviewers on amazon. However, *We did notice one review on
amazon reporting a defective case. *We do believe this is an isolated
occurrence but we have taken measures to inspect our existing
inventory so no defective case will get shipped in the future. *And in
case you did receive a defective one , please do contact us before you
initiate a return and we will issue a "no hassle" replacement.

And if you are pleased with our case, please share your experience
with other customers to help them make a more informed purchase
decision, by leaving a product review on Amazon:

www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B007CKLCSK

Again, we want o thank you for your business. We understand you have
many choices and appreciate your choosing MoKo case to protect you
Ipad. Please feel free to let us know if there is anything we need to
do to make this purchase a right one for you.

Best Regards,

Jim Pollak
from BSCstore on Amazon

all I can say is I love the fit and finish of the case and the sleep wake function does not work at all. I tried with an apple smart cover and it worked fine so the issue is with the case. i still love it, but I would love it more with the sleep wake function working.

nice part of my moko case is there is no logo of any kind unlike the poetic version... if they will replace my defective sleep/wake version in the near future without a big hassle that will great but if i have to start boxing this to "exchange" it etc. i will live it with because i love it and hopefully in 6 months when they are selling it for $10 again and working right i'll just buy another.

Well mine is "out for delivery" this morning so should be able to check on the magnet issue soon. I use a passcode so it is not as important for me but still saves a button press.

Still can't believe I ordered this on Sunday for ten bucks with normal shipping and am getting it today. I almost went for next-day delivery, which would have been delivered today too. Glad I passed on it (saved a whopping 3.99 lol).

Mine arrived today. The sleep wake definitely works. It's a nice feeling material and should travel well. The part that secures the case when closed is a snug fit and will not open accidentally, but seems like it'll need to be worn in a bit.

I mean the fit is just about right (it may be possible), but I think your bigger problem would be the clips they have to clip in too, I can see how that would affect the body skin...
