    Hey forums, I use a Surface Pro 5 with a Type Cover. The other day I flipped the cover all around to the back to show my colleague something on the screen. Then I wanted to press a key on the cover but it didn't work. Is this an intended behaviour? It would be cool if the cover could recognize that it's folded back and lock the keys. Back then I assumed that the thin cables connecting the actual keyboard and the Surface Connector are damaged and work only in the normal typing position. Thanks for your help!

    Yes that is normal behavior. When you flip the cover all the way back it disables it. It also switches to tablet mode (depending on your tablet mode settings).
