Possibly, but I can't think of a BIOS setting that would apply. I don't
think there's one for 'lose clock setting on power off'. I did think of boot
sequence but resetting the clock wouldn't fix that.
But I will have a play around the BIOS next time I start it up.
(Incidentally, the weird date on my posting has nothing to do with the R40's
date problem, my email runs on a desktop box which seems to have trouble
keeping track of the date too).
