    So my clock keeps getting behind when it goes to sleep i guess? Im not even really sure how, but whenever i first use my computer for the day the clock is behind be however many hours, but just hours, the minutes are exactly on as far as that is concerned, its almost like it switches timezones, but i keep checking and it is set the correct time zone. Any ideas?:confused:

    Is the lock, locked on your preferences?? I dont know why it would be changing but make sure it's locked..

    EDIT: I just checked and mine is actually unlocked. I also have checked "set time automatically"
    I dont know what else it would be...

    This was always the cause when our Dell towers would stop keeping time. The little watch battery was dead.

    If your under Apple Care which you are, it's definitely worth a trip to the Apple store.
