No way to disable as far as I know. Don't buy a smart cover is my only advice.

You can root your tablet and install xposed framework, there is a module called MagnetOff which disables the magentic sensor.

Does that module work with the 12.2? When I had tried it before it did not have any effect.

It does not work with the 12.2. It was the first thing I tried after installing xposed.

+1 He is absolutely correct. Ity has to have magnets. That is what trips the eletronic magnetic strip under the housing to trigger a poll on the LCD to take action.

Hi hsaltz, Yes there is a setting to turn this function on or off. In settings go to the General Tab, then under Device manager go to Accessory, then under Book Cover you will see this setting / option. I hope this helps.
