    Automatically locking BitLocker volumes

    Is there an easy way to have certain BitLocker volumes lock automatically after a period of user absence and lack of reading/writing to the volumes? Perhaps a utility that does this?

    I've been playing with a scheduled task, but so far, it locks the volumes when I don't want them to, and is oblivious to when the volumes are being used.

    Edit: I guess I will just use Shutter, which I have been using for a long time, but never for this. I'm guessing I will need to run Shutter with elevation for this (i.e. manage-bde.exe -lock -fd) to work. I was hoping to use a more dedicated utility, without having to learn how to do it in AutoHotkey or something.
