Removing protective password from Nook color

I had a protective password on my Nook, but it is now driving me crazy having to enter it everytime I turn it on.  Does anybody know how I can remove the protective password?

Re: Removing protective password from Nook color

I'm glad you found the information you needed.  I'm Shadowcat, Welcome to the forum, I wished I had more time to type this but in five minutes I have a class to go to but, have a good day. 

Help me down the crooked road. Lead me to the light. I'm not sure I know the way but with you beside me, I'm certain we'll make it through.

 I tried to uncheck the box but everytime I tap it, the password screen pops up so I am not able to uncheck the box.  Any other ideas?

That sounds like expected behavior, if one can disable a password without entering the password it makes having passwords useless.

 

Did you try entering the password when it asked?
