Since you have no fourth amamendment rights upon entry to the country at the moment, the government does not need a warrant to seize your laptop and/or make an image of it to play with at one's leisure.  Of course, even having a good password is no guarantee any more.

In the US you probably can't be ordered to provide your password. If you 
are transiting the border it is probably best not to take sensitive data 
with you. It will normally be safer to use the internet to transfer the 
data after you have crossed the border.
