Every time I turn off and reboot my computer, my clock ends up being about 10 minutes behind real time or so. I was wondering if this is because its internal battery is running down or something, but the strange thing is this only happens when we're in standard time. This was a problem last winter, but during daylight savings time, there is no problem, and now it's a problem once again.

Thats strange... if the battery was starting to go, it should have the same problems in both time periods--with and without daylight savings. How old is your computer? The CMOS battery typically outlasts the computer as they should last up to five years... depending on how much time your computer spends shut down. Either way I would try replacing the batter and see if that does it... after all it never hurts to try. Just be careful not to break the plastic casing on the battery as it is easy to do and even though it isn't expensive to replace, it is a hassle and you don't want to add to the problems you have already. It just isn't an effective strategy for fixing things--if you want to take one step forward, it never helps to take one step back instead. :rolleyes:
