    I have had my new MBP for about 2.5 weeks. On two different occasions, when I turn my computer on from being completely off the pop up appears saying my date and time are set improperly. The computer sets its self/ forget the date and time and goes back to 1/30/2000 at 6 am or so, when obviously its not Jan of 2000 and I'm not turning my computer on at 6 a.m. Anyway to make sure this doesn't happen? Has anyone else had this experience? I never once had this problem with my whitebook the 4 years I had it.

    I have never heard of that one. Go to system preferences and under time/date setting you may be able to find a solution.

    Sound like there could be an bug with the PRAM, you can try resetting it by pressing and holding Command+Option+P+R at powerup, wait for the second 'bong' before releasing. In theory this should solve it but if your MBP continues to misbehave return it to Apple cause it's a hardware issue.

    yeah, I looked around there, nothing besides the automatically keep time option, which I have checked so it's enabled, and is still checked when it tells me to correct the time.
