Is there any way to password lock the Kobo Glo's screen? I live in an area where people mucking with my devices is a distinct possibility and i'd like to discourage that as much as possible.

Actually thats a decent idea for a firmware feature.

Shhh! It will probably get implemented as typing in your Kobo account email address. And Password. And having to be connected to the internet.

And in the next update after introduction, going on past experience, they will break it and we'll all be locked out. No thanks.
