    Is data protected in any way, and if so, how, in sleep/hibernation modes or
    if the battery runs down?

    So if the battery goes dead and someone recharges it, the data would be
    unencrypted and available?

  4. when your battery runs down the machine is powered off. Once powered on they
    would need to perform a bitlocker check.

    microsoft.public.windows.vista.security news group, Josh
    Or it is hibernated depending on how you've got the power
    scheme configured in which case BDE protection is still
    enabled.
