No need to mess with the OS if it's a case of a too tight case.
Placing in the case, even when button pressed will be ineffective. Any task being performed when the BB detects the magnet will cease because of it. I have a seidio case and if I place the BB in backwards, NONE of the keys work when pressed because it is asleep.
