    Hi guys, I bought yesterday one case that have that thing that opens de tablet without touching the power button, the problem is when I fold the case over backwards the magnetic strip in it is triggering the "sleep" function,
    Has anyone yet figured out a way to shut off the autosleep/awake function? I already went to acessory and disable that option but keeps the same.

    Welcome to Android Central! That's a design flaw of the cover -- they embedded a magnet that's too strong. I think you may have to root the tablet and use something like Xposed Framework to disable the smartcover sensor, so you may just want to return the cover and try another one. When in doubt, stick with covers made by Samsung, if possible.

    It's a hardware-software incompatibility and the software is not open-source, so modify the hardware. I used a scalpel to cut the inside of the case, removed the magnets and glued it up again. Fixed.

    Who makes the case. Is it a Samsung, or a third party case?
