I can't see any way, unless there is a secret menu to access, or a command prompt.

Don't think you are, I can't see it either.

Does it matter?

I considered hiding my SSID when I first started using wireless connection, and a little bit of research showed it was pointless to do so. I don't remember the details, but it was something to do with anybody with evil intent looking for wireless connections near them would find you anyway, and who cares about those without such intent?

You can use netstumbler or vistumbler to find hidden network if you want to find them so as RobertoS says its pointless it adds like 10 seconds to the job for any one who actually wants to find your wifi.
