I just got an iPad mini with Retina Display (from the Apple Store) and a Smart Case.

The problem I'm having is that when folding the smart case over the back, the magnets of the Case would put the iPad to sleep.

I'm headed to the Apple Store today, but wanted to know if anyone else had experienced something like this, and if so, if was the iPad's or case's fault.

As good as industrial manufacturing is these days, there are always variances. Chances are the magnet in your Smart Case is a bit stronger than Apple intended. You can either wait for the magnet to lose some of its magnetism, go to an Apple Store and have them replace it for you, or try holding your Smart Case a little differently as illustrated below.
