No opening necessary. In fact, I was lightly squeezing it closed. Just put your eye up to the tiny gap and look down between the device and cover flap from the top. It's also apparent from the fact that it was already on when opened and the fact that it didn't go off using the power button and it stayed on when the device went to sleep mode due to inactivity.
