    So... I thought this would be an 'automatic thing.' As in, Apple's own accessory would get rid of my on screen keyboard AND let me still type. When I reduce the size of the on screen keyboard, I usually can't type in the field I was working in.

    On the other hand, most bluetooth keyboards that have an extra row of function keys allow me to shut that down! UGH! Anyone know a magic keyboard shortcut?

    Speaking of keyboard short cut, it seems like the only real universal one is the Command - Tab. Does this sound right? The home combination doesn't seem to be universal either...

    For me, when the Smart Keyboard is in the typing position, the on-screen keyboard is automatically hidden.

    In fact, the iPad will not register any keyboard input at all unless the iPad is seated in the magnetic strip on the keyboard.
