I wound up ordering this one: Fintie Nook GlowLight 3 Case - Slim Fit I like the official case and the Slim Shell case better, as I don't like the material covering parts of the bezel. But I'm not the one that will be using it.

Since Fintie has two and calls them both slim, did you get the shell or the fit (the one that covers the bezel)? That's the one I ordered. But it hasn't arrived yet.

Do the Fintie cases perform auto-sleep when closed?

I think I remember him showing the "fit" listing when he bought it. I don't think the "shell" was shipping to Canada yet at the time.

Got the Slim Fit today. It's a nice case. I woiuld have bought the Slim Shell, since I don't like covering the bezels. But then, it's not for me.

No, I don't think the official case does either. And my Fintie case for my tablet does. I believe the Glowlight 3 doesn't support sleep cases.

I feel the same. My Kindle Basic (8th Generation) has the Fintie Slim Shell case. I could have bought the Fintie Folio for it (which I think is basically the same as the Slim Fit for the Nook) but didn't want that one. I think Fintie has the same choices for the Nook GlowLight Plus also.

I haven't seen anyone advertise the Sleep feature for the GlowLight 3 (including Barnes & Noble), so I'm pretty sure you're right. Seems like an odd feature to leave out.

First one. It covers the bezel. Its chunky in a good way but light. It does not put the nook to sleep.

The Fintie slimfit folio cover. It arrived a couple of weeks ago. I'm happy with it. It is protective and adds bulk, but not much weight.

This case has a rather soft hinge area. As a left-handed person, it seemed too mushy in my hand. I turned the nook 180 degrees around in the case and the hinge is on the right. Now my dominant hand has a solid grip on the case. The original cutout area for the charging cable is now on top, at the power button. The opening now used for the charger is a bit smaller, ~3mm, and it covers the LED. The light is very bright, however, so it's possible to see the amber/green-ness anyway.

The sleep/wake feature on my HD+ is kind of inconsistent, and often I'll click the power button to sleep it and the home button to wake it.

So clicking the power button on my NG3 isn't a big deal, and it works every time. Also, the e-ink screen doesn't use battery like the HD+ screen. Maybe this is why they didn't include the feature? (I use the very nice warm NG3 frontlight all the time, so I always put it to sleep manually, without waiting for it to time out.)
