    my new 13" went flat yesterday and placed its self into standby, i was going to bed so closed the lid and placed it on charge, when i got home tonight i took it of charge and opened it up, no life, pressed the power button and got the normal boot up sequence which i thought was strange as itv should have only been on standby, now here is the strange bit, it had lost its time and date, it had reset to 00:00 01/01/2001, next it had also lost my wifi password.

    is this normal ?

    In all apple previous computers the time is maintained by a battery on the logicboard, so it shouldn't forget the time if the battery runs flat, maybe it's different with the new MacBook air, i honestly didn't open these machines yet. But you definitely should call apple if it's a new machine.
