Yes, I know, and I should do that if I ever can remember to. :-) Kind of became a habit, like I'm sure it will with the PW.
Edit: And, I should add, on the Nexus 7 there's some added benefit of the lock screen, like having music controls accessible. It's actually quicker to pause music in opening the cover and hitting the pause button on the lock screen, then it would be to pull down the notifications bar and hit pause there.
However, back on point: it might end up being worth $20 to "unlock" the PW, but so far it's not been much of a bother.
