BlackBerry PlayBook - soft shell (don't buy it)

Gear: BlackBerry PlayBook, Slate Tablets.

Spending $500 on a tablet or any system is a lot of money and you should try to protect your investment.  When I got the PlayBook I knew I was going to end up scratching the back of it and so I decided to get the "soft shell" accessory.  The soft shell fits the PlayBook very well, has access to all of the ports and buttons.  It sounds good and all, but there is a problem regarding the power button.  You cannot press the power button which switches the system between the sleep/resume modes.

This $40 first party accessory is going back to the store.  If you managed to stumble upon this post hopefully this saves you some time, and money.  For now I'll use the included sleeve, but a case to protect the back will come in useful.  I will take your suggestions.
