Low battery -> power down + clock set back to 1904-01-01
The battery of my PowerBook G4 got too low and the machine was put into
sleep. I closed the lid, changed the battery, but when I reopened the
lid, I noticed that the PowerBook was in fact off. And when I switched
it on (around 21:00), the clock was set back to 1904-01-01. Here's a
