A bit of magnetic viewing film works wonders in revealing the magnets hidden beneath the Smart Cover and iPad 2.
Magnetic viewing film has special properties that allow it to react to a magnet's poles.
The Smart Cover has one magnet that turns off the iPad 2's screen. The rest are used to either clamp to the iPad on the right side (the far-right column of magnets), or to form the triangular shape used to create a stand for the iPad 2.
In fact, you don't need the Smart Cover to turn your iPad 2's screen on or off. We used iFixit's handy-dandy magnetic pickup tool to activate the sleep sensor on the iPad 2.
