If the PMU gets reset that often, beacuse you press the little reset key
at the back, the solution is easy: just don't do that.  There's hardly
ever a reason to rest the PMU.  If your box crashes, you can also bring
it down by keeping the power key pressed down for about 5 seconds; this
will not reset the PMU, and so will keep your time intact.

Now why doesn't the manual mention this?


Cheers,
