    Has this happened to anyone?
    I woke up this morning and my Router password was forgotten, and my clock was set to December 31, 2000. When i got it connected to the Internet it was correct again.

    Losing the time when powered off usually indicates a problem with the battery. Computers, even desktops, have a small battery that keeps the clock ticking. They do wear out; I had an older Dell laptop that wouldn't keep time after being powered off and I had to reset the time every time I booted the machine. It was old and I only used it for one program, so I didn't bother to try to get it fixed. If you have a new MBP, then it's time to take it to the Genius bar.

    If you are talking about your 2010 MBP, then if it happens again make an appointment at the apple store. As previously stated its most likely the bios battery.
