Power Control Widgets Override Restriction Lock
In reviewing some location based security settings I've found that when I enable the Location Restriction in Lock Restrictions (located under settings > location & security settings) it will not allow you to turn on GPS through the locations & security settings page, however you can turn on the GPS using the stock Android Power Control widget or other third party power widgets. I am using a Motorola Droid X running the latest OTA update...
Is there anyway to lock the GPS off, so it can not be turned on with a power control widget?

I'm not sure why you would want to lock GPS but if you don't want to accidentally turn it on, remove power conrol widget from your screen.
Use a 3rd party widget like SwitchPro, and don't add GPS when setting the widget...
Logical...Although not fail safe, at least not for my users...
