Driver rtc cmos needs updating please are there any absolutely dating sites
There is an interesting tool (part of util-linux package) to make your system sleep and wakeup using the RTC.For example you can suspend your system into memory, disk or shutdown your system for a fixed amount of seconds and then automatically get your system restored/reboot.
In this the RTC would generate one interrupt per update cycle.
Now one might wonder if the RTC is alive even when the computer is shut down, then should it send alarm interrupts when the computer is shut down?
The answer is yes it would and it would wake the computer automatically.
Recently on a cold boot(startup) the system displays "Default BIOS settings have been loaded due to BIOS update or checksum..." The BIOS date defaults to 12/15/2010.
Updating the date in "Setup" does not hold with a new starup/cold boot - BIOS defaults to 12/15/2010. Cannot find a document on the HP Consumer Support Web site to replace the battery for my computer series.
