replaced the 3.6v lithium about a month ago on a G4 sonnet powered graphite. I just installed OS X 10.2 without the 9.1 classic. Now my clock doesn't keep time when it is shut down, after it's turned on it's 4 hour off however, the day, date and zone does remain correct. Except for daylight savings time this weekend i turned it on and it was correct. after i shut it down then it went back to 4 hours off.

is it the software in an older machine? do you have to run at least 9.1 together with jaguar

You could always set a network time server under System Preferences. "Set Date and Time automatically"

I'd zap the PRAM if I were you. That might do it.

if you are still having problems its possible you bought a weak or old battery
