Control your iPad Mini Display with Magnets in your DIY cover

Iceng has an excellent Instructable about the magnets in an iPad 3. I haven't seen anything yet about the mini. I just spent a half hour figuring it out.  So I thought I would share it here. I see there's a video on the YouTube that reveals the location of the important magnetic switches, but YouTube is an evil scourge to humanity and should never be supported.

Anyway, until someone does something better, here's the info on how I did it at least.

Step 1: Build or buy a cover/case

There are intstructables about making your own ipad mini case. I noticed one person used Sugaru. I just removed all the pages from a book and build a custom frame out of foam board. Glued it in and walah.
