Hi

1) If you turn off PW and close cover, PW stays off and wakes up, when you open cover
2) Leaving cover open, then how about dust? (this are primary reason for me use covers)
3) May-be I am wrong, but think again. When kindle use power? Amazon writes that battery life are xxxx page turns so, if you dont turn page (like screensavar) then kindle dont use power. Of couse, PW use power for wifi, light, 3G but in screensaver mode all this are turned off (its like I understand this)

Here's what's bothering me:
I always turn off my PW when not in use by pressing the power button for 7s. I think it saves more power this way, but I could be wrong. Now, from what I understand, the covers put it to sleep, which means it goes to the screensaver?
If I turn it off and then close the cover, will it stay off, go to sleep or turn itself back on?
With the cover closed, and assuming it goes into screensaver mode, can I turn it off?

It's kind of hard for me to accept the auto wake function though. Just because I have the cover is open doesn't mean I want to read something...


Should I look further for some nice non-auto wake/sleep covers or am I being too picky?


Thanks!!
