Question for all Surface Owners

So I was at my local Best Buy checking out the Surfaces in anticipation for the Surface 2, which I plan on getting (a Pro, at least).

Something that really concerned me, though, was the fact that no matter how many times I click the covers on and off the Surface, they do not respond. No keyboard, no trackpad. Nothing.

Looking online, there seems to be a number of different forums which have the same problem with the covers. Of course, given the nature of troubleshooting forums, I don't actually know the percentage of Surface owners actually have this issue.

tl;dr Have any of you Surface owners out there had any issues with either the Type or Touch covers? It'd be kind of a shame to have the only major difference between this and other tablets fail to work like it should.
