Yep... You've been experiencing this since December 31st. You have 2010Fix installed. The fix doesn't, it has a bug. Check the archives for January 2009 for a lengthy overview of why/how you should remove it.

Subject: [NTLK] Soft Reset Causes Date/Time Reset
Every time I perform a "soft" reset of my 2100, my date and time need to be reset.  I've been experiencing this for the past few months.  I thought it
might just be the result of a dead lithium battery affixed to the logic board; but from what I've read, the 2100 has a capacitor to maintain the
date/time.  I have the 2010 fix installed, so could this date/time-reset problem be related to that extension, or is my capacitor simply dead?  Has anyone else experienced this problem?  I don't recall that I had this problem before, and I remember performing many soft-resets last year but I
never had to reset the date and time every since time like I do now.
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
