Question Magnetic On/Off feature.

Hello, I have looked through the threads for the PW2 and could not find anything on this. I am wanting to disable the magnetic on/off feature for my kindle. I would like to keep my case, and the magnet in it and was wondering if there was any way to do this.

Nope - its a hardware (hard-wired) feature of the motherboard.

Remove magnet from case\
Use a different case\
or try to shield the magnetic field of existing case magnet.

Ah, I see. Thank you for the reply. I guess I'll just have to invest in a new case.
