Yup, it's here, and you can do it!
Hope you enjoy it!

Don't carve your cases/buy any special thin strong magnet until you're sure you have the functionality you want!

Jelly Bean!
Some users reporting it works great. In my XP, it works perfectly on RaymanFX's JB rom.

-On ICS:
Some roms:
Lock+Wake - Same functionality as in iDevices!
Tested on: Megatron Rom, (derived from CM9)
May work perfectly on your ICS rom.

On some ICS roms:
It will work the opposite way.
Meaning that the device will unlock (wake) when the magnet gets closer to the screen,instead of further away (like Apple's, or other ICS roms)

-Non-ICS roms:
This only WAKES the device, doesn't unlock it.
If you want unlock you can set locking method to None in the preferences.
It does NOT Lock the device on honeycomb roms.

Don't get it. So just placing a magnet on those coordinates on the tablet will make it do this?

doh! but the main question I have it - WHATS THE COVER? how is it named and where did you got it? I cannot find any transformer-related case with such thin borders and not covering its face at all.

The case has been reviewed here:

In my experience, the best ebay search you can do in order to find it is : "360 TF101 case".
Many sellers ship it worldwide so you should be able to get it no problem!

So THAT'S how the Tablet knows when you hinge it up from the keyboard when docked!

Cunning Cunning....

The case emulates the opening of the lid on the keyboard dock which wakes the tab. The keyboard has a magnet on the dock that corresponds to the coordinates on the tablet. He says this in the video with the little stringy things floating around.

This mod would work great in conjunction with Power Switch, which sleeps the tablet when you close the cover.
