    I restarted my computer, and when it booted back up the clock was reset to Dec 31 2000. I did not change the clock, and my control settings are password locked.

    Should I be concerned about this, and has this happened to anybody else?

    Thanks.

    Happened to me a few days ago - restarted and all was back as normal.

    I assumed I dreamt it cos Macs "just work".

    Yep. Reboot while holding down Command, Option, P, and R. You'll hear a second startup chime after a few seconds. Keep holding them down until you've heard three or four, then release them to boot normally.
