    My Mac can't automatically sync to the right time! I have to manually click on the time display, open up Date & Time, before the system updates the time. And yes, I'm always connected to the Internet and it's set to automatically sync to time.apple.com. Then when I reboot, the time is off again. Anybody else has this glitch? It was happening before the latest patch too.

    How old is your machine? The internal battery which retains the date and time info might be flat.

    I had this problem too. I found out that i had my system time setings locked ( lock on the botom of the left windo) After unlocking the date/time area under system preferences. Now the time and date automatically updated to internet time.

    Not sure if it helps but just an idea.
