I said "disconnects the battery" because that's what happens with the
IR version.
In the bluetooth version perhaps the same contact disconnects the
RADIO which is the power-hungry element of any BT device.

What I do know is what I read on reviews... the unit is supposed NOT
TO waste battery operating when you fold it and close it.

You still haven't told us if the behaviour you experienced was with
the keyboard fully closed or if you left it standing in open position.
