    Do you use Boot Camp? The time on mine is always off after I boot back into OS X.

    sometimes you just have to give it some time, if you've waited a while than re-boot it and see what happens...

    When I use Bootcamp, after a restart, I must manually set the time since the automatic feature will not work. I've told Apple but the guy "hadn't heard of it before."

    In the case, I'd go with server issues with Apple's NTP servers (or somewhere between you and Apple). :)

    I had this problem when
    a) my laptop ran out of battery or
    b) my laptop wasn't shut down properly (i.e. power failure when my laptop was connected to the wall socket).

    I also had this issue recently with my desktop but I think it was for reason (b) plus a mix-up with Little Snitch on the restart...

    I have the same issue on my MBP. It appears to be a known issue with the way Windows sets the time.

    The work-around that seems to work for me is changing the time on Windows so that when I go back to mac os x it compensates for it. It's not pretty but since I don't use Windows that much I don't care too much about it.

    Here are some discussions about the issue

    Thanks jag00! i have just been manually setting it now and resetting the automatic time. I too use Windows with bootcamp not very often so i guess im ok with it. hopefully apple will come up with some kind of fix in the near future. they'll probably wait until the new MacBooks come out... haha
