    If I drain my battery all the way down then power up my system, the clock will reset back to 2001 and my power management settings will reset as well. I expected that my macbook air would have a little battery to keep all this information even if the battery power runs out, but either mine is broken or this is normal for the mba. Does anyone else have this problem? Is this normal or is mine broken?

    If the Air has a PRAM battery it must have failed or run flat - have you left the computer uncharged on 0% for a long period of time? Otherwise it must just use the inbuilt battery as it is assumed it will never be removed.

    Try reseting the PRAM (Command-Option-P-R).

    Best thing would be to contact Apple.

    My MacBook does that if I leave it completely dead for a few days.

    Hm, mine seems to do this immediately after the battery is drained.
