I object because I would like to continue.
For some odd reason I must have missed the last answer.

Syntax for locking was already given.
For unlocking: manage-bde -unlock d: -pw
That will ask for a password (if you set a password as protector) and after entering it, it will unlock.

Hi techp.

It's hard to understand what you are talking about. If I get you right, you would like to defend yourself against spying administrators by means of bitlocker?
That is no adequate measure, in fact, there is no measure.

Either you are the only admin on your computer or not. Nothing in between.
As admins can use keyloggers, encryption passwords are easily found making bitlocker useless.

McKnife, I agree that they do but I don't know of any admins who use keyloggers.

techp, I don't understand your last comment, can you rephrase it, please?
akb, I read of many admins who have even been forced to do so by their bosses in order to get their hands on somethings that people hid from them.

You can write a script that gets executed when the computer is idle for some time and locks bitlocked drives, yes. Task scheduler can trigger tasks on idle and the script would simply go
manage-bde -lock d:

The unlocking could be done with a script as well that just asks for your password.
manage-bde -unlock d:
would be its core.

If you need help with the syntax, just say.
