You have to have 'dial from home screen' set to No

You could also go to the Screen/Keyboard options and set the Convenience Key to 'Keypad Lock'. You'd still need *+(send) to unlock.

and when it is set to no, all one has to do is press the letter K to lock it. The Star key will not do it like it does in the pearl.

Just to add to this...don't hold down the "K", just tap it once.
