I purchased the case on the same Amazon page as the Paperwhite. My case has no bend and one cannot see through the case if it is closed.
If it has a bend, it may be defective. Maybe defective cases do NOT shut the light properly.
My PW case transmits the latest page read to my Kindle Fire 1st Gen as soon as the case is closed. It has a magnetic clasp on the cover. If you don't have the immediate transmission, then that's another sign of a problem.
