I don't believe anyone has mentioned one other negative side effect of the new lock feature, which is that the new "lock" picture is much more opaque than what was on the last lock screen (which did not feature a picture of a lock at all), making it difficult to simply look at track information that's already playing...you often have to unlock the device first, especially if you're out in the sun.

I tried it several times today. Time between unlocking and working volume: less than 5 seconds. 3 seconds at most. And I always touch the touchpad pulling the player out of my pocket.

unlocking then vol isn't the problem it's trying to use them right after it's locked/the lock screen appears(like when you touch the touch pad whie trying to up volume in your pocket.)

Awesome ! Thanks for the firmware update !
Changing the lock Functionality was a great idea. I like it better now..
Just a reminder that myself and probably others chose the Fuze+ mostly because of its FLAC support.
so ironing out the tagging bugs on that would cool.
I popped by randomily to see if there was a firmware update and to my suprise there was
Good Job Sansa Crew !

The lock function is intended to lock (inhibit) the touchpad. The hard keys, the top on / off button and the side volume buttons are not locked. At least, in theory. The volume buttons are temporarily locked, and will operate after a delay.
