I tried out a refrigerator magnet with mine yesterday. It worked though it was a bit sluggish to turn on and off. I probably would need a better magnet. Perhaps one out of a no-longer-used phone holster. I've got a few of those lying about.

Hmm, at what point of the device does the magnet need to connect?

Bottom right corner of Kindle. Just move the magnet around and you can find the ideal location.

Awesome. Got a magnetized probe out of my toolkit, found it right away. I'll have to rig something if I keep the PW.

(Bright side of hanging out on these forums due to PW woes: have learned quite a few tricks and tips.)

The hall-effect magnetic sensor is on the right side of the screen, about one inch (2-3cm) above the bottom edge of the screen. You can read its status using a simple linux command (script, on screen terminal, or SSH command prompt) if a hack wants to use it for purposes other than sleep/wake.

The light does a slow fade out/fade in when a magnet is moved over the sensor.
