I just turned it on, and it reads 2:25AM I just had to change it manually.
it might be an issue with your CMOS battery. it might need to be replaced. if it happens all the time, it could be an issue. for a temporary fix, you could go to the system preferences, then set it to get the time from the internet every time you start up.
the hardware issue is only one of possibly many causes, i can't think of others off the top of my head though
I've had it set up like that since I've bought this thing. Let's see how it is when I start it up when I leave class.
Did you use Windows before hand?
Yes. So using bootcamp fucks around with my clock settings?
it fucks with my settings, but only on the windows side. the clock is never right, but with mac, it's always right... weird
Yeah I have issues going back and forth from bootcamp also for some reason.`
I sort of suspect that the mac stores the system time in GMT or some arbitrary standard, and then applies an offset according to your time zone. Windows tries to store "local" time instead.
its because of a difference in the emulated BIOS or something like that. It can probably be fixed by Apple down the line with a Boot Camp/firmware update.
Apple knows about this, I'm sure it will be addressed with the final release. Remember, boot camp is only a beta.
but only on the xp side
My Tiger clock has been off a few times too. It'll be like 10 hours behind (often at night I have my computer to never sleep when plugged in but the display goes to sleep within 5 minutes).
Only way to fix it is to open system Preferences then Date and Time, but then it Automatically fixes itself.
