    hey I have a late 08 MBP, loaded with Vista via boot camp. I have an odd glitch. Every time I boot into Windows (semi-rare), then the next time i boot back into the wondrous OSX, the system clock is always moved back 5 hours exactly. Even if i set it to set the clock automatically from time.apple.com!

    any help? thanks, guys!

    I suspect you live in the +5 GMT timezone?

    This is typical behavior, and is related to the difference between timekeeping in OS X and Windows. In Windows, your time is stored according to your local time, whereas OS X system clock is always set to GMT (UTC).
