I just purchased a NOOK Simple Touch and a case for it (Lautner Cover) and have discovered that without removing the NOOK from the case, I cannot turned it off. It appears that the on/off button has to be depressed from the back of the NOOK not from the top of the NOOK. Am I doing somehting incorrectly?
It is a bit frustrating to have to remove the NOOK to completely power down. I didn't have to do that with the original NOOK or with my NOOKcolor.

I found the answer ... it is user error ..
There is a logo or belly band on the back of each cover. By applying pressure to the logo, it will turn the NOOK on or off.

You are correct, the power button should be pressed on the back of the nook, not down from the top.
I can't really speak about the case you're using, but you don't need to turn the N2E off unless you're not planning on using it for a few months, or if you need to power cycle it because you're having an issue.

B&N should have left the power button where it was. One of the few times I had to turn my N2E off, I found the only way to do it was to press the front/back case covers together between my thumb and forefinger. Pressing on the back cover alone doesn't exert sufficient pressure to budge the power button, or at least on my Simple Touch Reader it doesn't.
