Default [Q] Book cover issue

When I ordered the tablet i also got an Ivso cover.
I have an issue when I flip the cover fully open: when the magnetic part touches the top back side of tablet the screen will switch off. It looks like the tablet thinks that the cover has been closed.
This thing is quite annoying and I couldn't find any way to disable this.

Is there any way that I could change how the tablet reacts when the cover is closed? Disabling the behavior(lock it when the book cover closes) could work for me but i couldn't find a way to do it.

Any thoughts?

The cover you purchased is not genuine Samsung. I had ordered one on EBAY and it did the same thing. When I purchased the cover from BestBuy, I no longer have the issue because the cover opens opposite to the one I purchased from EBAY.

Is there an option to disable cover detection at all? I want to lock my tablet manually. I cannot find such option in settings...
