My PowerBook G4 has all of a sudden had a date problem. It changed to read "December 31, 1969." I received a message that, "Your computer's clock is set to a date before 2001. This may cause some applications to behave erratically."

I then restarted and the date changed to March, 21, 2001, with the following message:
"Your computer's clock is set to a date before March 24, 2001. This may cause some applications to behave erratically. Please use the Date & Time preference panel to set the clock manually. For more information, chose Mac Help from the Help menu."

I then went online, and set my date and time in the system preferences to update automatically and the date did get back to the correct date of today.

The fact that this happened concerns me and I would like to do everything to assure that I have a healthy computer. What happened, what is the problem and is there something that needs to be repaired or done to assure a happy running PB?

Thanks.

PowerBook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
