What about the other? No, not without brute force and the same applies to your home PC.
But my point is that if they left behind the laptop, if you simply boot it up, and can guess their password, you are in. So, if you did something dumb like make your Windows password, P@55w0rd, then Bitlocker provides you very little protection.
