With Windows 10 the drive is often encrypted.

If it was by default them most people would encrypt their laptop drive. Different on a server as someone has to be there to unlock it, which they already are with a laptop.

The desktop is less of a problem since less opportunity to steal it. The password in RAM is a lesser problem with the desktop because you cannot suspend to RAM and then steal it.
