Hi All,

Discovered that there is a secret magnet (or similar) built into the
covering case of the 770.  It is used to trigger a sensor located near
the Home button when the case is covering the screen, this in turn
causes the screen to power off and the keys to lock.  You can check
this by waving a v.small magnet over the Home key.  This is a pretty
nice feature.  Does anyone know anything more about it?  What sensor
is used? How is this event handled in software?
