Windows 7 always asks when I logged, "Enter password to unlock the drive". I do not want to unlock the drive yet and it's annoying. I'll unlock manually when I need these encrypted data.

How can I turn that feature off? (I'm not asking for disabling Bitlocker.)

Have you tried to disable automatic unlocking of Bitlocker via the command line tool manage-bde?

manage-bde -autounlock -disable E:

This command should disable autounlock of drive E:

See also MS Technet documentation of Manage-bde: autounlock
