If you run bitlocker and have it set to prompt for a password and find that the system powers of before you can enter the password then do the following.

From an elevated (admin) command prompt

 

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} bootshutdowndisabled 1

Should prevent it from happening again… although may need to be re-applied after windows 10 installs a new build.
