I think it are two seperate problems. "reboot" being one, "clock" the other.
On the reboot:
Without further information on "computer" it is hard to solve the problem.
There are various generations of "ACPI"
for some background information. Match the new ACPI knowledge with the computer,
then match it with software that handles the hardware well.
On the clock:
Microsoft Windows system expect their hardware clock in the local timezone.
Linux systems do default expect the hardware clock is in UTC timezone.
There is a setting to tell the Linux system that the hardware clock is in local timezone.
Debian-Installer asks about it and set it.
For allready installed systems read https://wiki.debian.org/DateTime#Hardware_clock_and_system_time_when_dual_booting
Who thinks that this bug should be closed.
