I was able to set a screen saver password in the original first edition Nook (i.e. a password to unlock the device when it wakes up or powered on). But this option is not avaiable in the Simple Touch (2nd edition). I checked with customer service. They asked me to go to the "Security" option but I told them there is no "Security" under Settings. They then asked me to check Screen option under Settings but when I told them the only options displayed are Authors and Nature, they said the password option is not available. BTW, I am not referring to Wifi or purchase passwords both of which I was able to set. Thanks!

I just bought the Simple Touch and this is a deal killer. I REALLY loved all the first edition had to offer. The only reason I updated was for the smaller, lighter size. I'm really disappointed that you do not offer security on this "updated" version. I consider that a down grade.
I just finished charging my "new" nook and that was the first function I looked for. Sorry, but this one will go back to the store.
