10.2.4 keeps forgetting Date/Time

Posted:
in macOS edited January 2014
Since I updated to 10.2.4 everytime I restart or turn on the machine. The time always sets back to 1969. WTF

    You guys running clean systems? Any mods or haxies? No problems here on 3 computers.

    My system is very "clean"



    I remember back to the 10.1 time all dual-processor PMs have the same date reset problem until 10.15 released.



    Seems like history is repeating itself

    Well my dual processor mac remembers the date fine. It does forget my keyboard layout though.

    I've restarted twice and haven't had this problem on my dual 500. I did, though, have the problem with losing the time back in 10.1 very frequently.



    Of course, I don't reboot all that often. Just when doing hardware stuff or system updates like this.

    Just a note, losing time is a sign of a dead|dying battery.



    This probably isnt the case here but... Just food for thought.

    Dang, I was just messing around booting into an OS 9 backup (euch!) and didn't think to look at what time it said. On X I have the "Use Network Time Server" box ticked, so I wouldn't notice if 10.2.4 was having problems...

    Look i have a dual 867mhz....no way it could have a flat bat this quick!?



    From 10.2 to 10.2.3 all was ok...now as soon as i go to 10.2.4...



    shut down your macs for one hour then back on and see if it still keeps the time.

    YOu don't have to wait for an hour.



    Just shut it down for 10 sec and turn it on again...da da!



    I personally don't like the network time sync thing because there were a few times my internet connection went down and the boot process stalled for over 5 minute (detecting the network)when I turn on that function



    But now it seems I have no choice but to turn that on until the fix arrives

    How can it be that only two people with the update have this bug?

    Just checked 3 different dualies I have access to, all upgraded to 10.2.4, no date/time amnesia (or other problems for that matter) after either reboots or shut downs.



    Apple MacOS X discussion forum lists some problems after upgrading, but couldn't find anything related to Date/Time.



    Doesn't seem to be a widespread issue.

    Well sorry to hear about this but My G4 450 keeps time just the same as before. It doesn't matter if I boot into 9 or turn off the network time server ( which I've had mine on all the time and had zero problems even when the net goes down ). As a matter of fact I've yet to notice much difference with 10.2.4 at all. And I think something would have shown up by now.



    Well there's one thing the DNS bug that I talked about on another thread hasn't reared it's ugly head so maybe that's fixed.



    I'm sure you've already tried this but I'd try zapping your P-RAM and see if that has any effect.

    I have a dual 1Ghz quicksilver and I have this problem. Even after booting from a clean install on the new HD I've just receive. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[oyvey]" /> Very frustrating. The keyboard menu is also reset back to it default after restart, even if pref are ok

    Not on any of my dual 867s. Sounds like the battery is dead or close to it. That is the same exact symptoms I have seen on the hundred or so Macs I admin.

    Well it isn't the bat if you look here

    you will see that these same people went in os 9 shut down and didn't lose the time....so this is a 10.2.4 bug...and a pain in the ASS one too....



    I hope we don't have to wait for 10.2.5 for this to be fixed
