Default Surface Pro 2 with Touch Cover 2 connectivity issue if you have a cover with magnets

i have a surface pro 2 with the touch cover 2 and when i use the flip cover the keyboard becomes unresponsive, would not work at all. it turns out to be the magnets in the flip cover that hold the cover shut interferes with the connectivity between the surface pro and the keyboard. has any have the same issue? any covers out there that are conscious about this issues? ideas please
