How do I make a bed on wheels stay put?

Moving, got new queen bed. I have a metal frame on wheels, but find the idea of rolling my bed around the room retarded. How do I make my bed stay put like the piece of furniture its supposed to be without spending the $$ for a wooden platform bed?

So I'm moving, and I've made me a fake queen-sized tempurpedic bed (ebay memory foam + 6 inches of polyurethane in a dust mite zippered cover, plywood boxspring underneath...here's hoping it's comfortable!). I have wood floors, and I believe the bed would feel too low to the ground if I just removed the metal rolling frame. Ideas?
Question 2: why on earth do bedframes have wheels in the first place? I don't know if I've ever seen anyone have any urge to roll their bed to the other side of a room.
