hwclock on a laptop is not keeping time

When ever i boot my laptop all clocks are set to the time at which i switched off the laptop.

Booting into XP doesn't replicate the problem.

Both the hwclock and the system clock are set to use local time.

It would appear that Suse is writing the last recorded system time to the hardware clock during start-up.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Note: Currently i don't have any internet access at home, so ntp sync'ing isn't a viable solution.

Choose UTC time instead of local time. Linux likes UTC.
