    Vivotab RT case issue

    OK, very strange issue. My Vivotab was acting very strange. It would go to sleep and not wake up or sometimes I couldn't power it up.

    So it somehow appears that the case I purchased for it was the culprit but I have no idea why. I'll post the model number of the case later when I can get the number.

    If I take it out of the case it works fine every time. If I put it back in the case it it starts acting up.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Here you go:

    It's a MiniSuite PU leather case cover for the ASUS ViviTab TF600, keyboard compatible (executive black folder)

    Well, a little more information. If I set the tablet down on one side of the case, the tablet screen shuts off. As soon as I pick it up the display comes back on. I tried it with other flat surfaces of various material with no effect. There is some material in the case which causes the tablet to act much the same way as a laptop going to sleep when the lid is closed.

    Maybe you could contact the Minisuite people and see what they have to say. Seems odd as they have probably sold thousands of the cases.

    Yea, I think its my next step. I'm guessing its a design feature to put it to sleep when the case cover is closed and the tablet is still on. Unfortunately it puts it to sleep when the cover is open.

    I have a similar situation with my KeysCase leather case. My situation requires me to actually manually shutdown and the start back up vi the power button. F.Y.I the "design feature" you refer to is a magnetic piece that all these cases have that causes it to sleep the screen when it touches the screen.

    Yea, that's what I figured. My issue is that even with the case open it won't respond to the power button at all. I initially thought it was dead. Only when I remove it from the case will it then power up. Maybe the magnet is too strong?
