"Remote control is not in the ignition lock"

Received this message twice in the last week.

"Remote control is not in the ignition lock. Restarting the engine may not be possible. Have the system checked by the nearest bmw center"

Has anyone seen this before. I searched the Internet and this forum and couldn't find a definitive answer. Called the dealership and the tech had never heard of this but said to bring it in.

After about 20 seconds it went away and the car started/ran fine.

Thanks

Mine does this sometimes, if I dont fully put the key in properly.
I usually just shut off the car, take the key out, then start over.
