Microsoft has issued a fix for a BitLocker-related problem affecting Surface 2 users. Some users of Microsoft's ARM-based Surface 2 devices have been complaining that when resuming or restarting their devices from sleep, they have been prompted to enter their BitLocker recovery keys. For some, the problem was occuring every time they attempted to power up their Surface 2s; for others, the problem was intermittent. On January 6, Microsoft released an update to fix this problem. The update is available for download via Windows Update.
