I just bought an iPad 2, and a smart cover.
If I take the smart cover off, put it to sleep, and someone Facetime's me, it wakes up, and the call comes in.

However, if the smart cover is on, the call doesn't connect, as it won't wake up!

Is this just me? A flaw in the system? Or am I missing something?

Seems stupid…

I've never had someone Facetime me so I don't know. I guess I'm just not popular enough

I can't find any settings but it seems to work for me with the cover on

60% of the time it works every time.

I have not had this particular problem with the cover, but still don't think it's the best....I keep going back to my leather case because it protects the back of my iPad.
