 when I've had to reset via the little reset button at the top, uncool
 when I didn't catch before sending a bunch of e-mail.

does that happen consistently?? that is sooo broken gah.

not sure if it's consistent. i've only had the date reset on my ibook twice. once about 8 months ago when i left it unplugged and the battery drained. the other was 2 nights ago when I locked up OS X something fierce and could only reboot by using a paper clip to hit the hidden reset button up by the monitor.

I really don't want to test at the moment, but i'm planning an upgrade to a larger hard drive (3GB sucks) and more memory in a couple of months. I may hit the reset a few times just to see what happens.
