    On my new C2D MacBook Pro the clock in the top right is constantly off by a few hours. When I open the clock settings in system preferences it sets it self to the right time. But this happens even after restarts. Any ideas?

    Any ideas?

    Do you have "Set date & time automatically" checked in System Preferences?

    Do you have Boot Camp installed and is Windows set to automatically adjust your clock too?

    Yeah, I'm running bootcamp as welll, but this seems to be a Mac OS only problem. And yes, I have it setting the clock automatically, but it's still off by a few hours.

    There was a problem with Windows and OSX trying to set the time and ending up getting it wrong in Boot Camp pre version 1.1. What version of Boot Camp do you have? :)

    It can only automatically set your clock to whatever time zone you choose. It cannot automatically detect the time zone for you. Have you set the correct time zone in both Mac OS X and Windows?

    I'm running the newest version of bootcamp (1.1.2) I've had the right time zone since i've opened the computer last week.
