Does the kobo brand sleep cover fold back flat?

Does the kobo brand sleep cover fold back flat for easy reading? I am especially concerned with the kobo glo cloth version.

It does not fold back flat, but I do not find it difficult to read with it folded back.

I have the cloth version of the glo sleepcover, it folds back flat and the elastic goes around the front cover at the back so that it is secured.

Yep, I can confirm that my fabric sleepcover folds back completely flat too.

Did you guys push yours flat? Does it not weaken the cover?

I just fold it back, don't apply any pressure to get it flat, and just use the elastic strap to hold the cover secure. That way, it's not flat, but I have no problem using it that way.

It doesn't require any force at all - a normal "holding-the-book"-level squeeze squishes it to flat. This is with the fabric sleepcover; I can't speak to the plastic or leather ones.

Yea, i have the grey fabric one. I just fold mine back and hold it there, which creates a small gap on the left hand side.
