My Nook Simple Touch changes pages on its own

I purchased a Nook SimpleTouch with glow light in May to replace my well-loved Nook Classic. I love it! Except it turns pages on its own.

When I was done reading my old Nook, I just would close the cover & pop it in my bag. If I do that with the Simple Touch, when I return to reading I'm a goodly chunk of pages away from where I left off - either forward or backward.
I chatted with Nook support, and the rep's suggestion was that it could have been a bug in the book I was reading at the time. That's not the case, as it happens with all of my books. There are no hairs on the screen, I have a simple folding cover for it, and I've tried doing a hard reset.
My current workaround is bookmarking my current page and clicking the power off button in the back after I've stopped reading. It's a tiny pain, considering I was used to the Nook holding my page for me. But the phantom touch persists. A few days ago the Nook was one click away from signing me up for a free trial of Motor Trend magazine!
I've checked some Nook forums and found one similar question with no good answer. If I have to bring it into a B&N I will, but I was wondering if anyone in the hive has experienced this problem and if there is a solution.
