Also, sorry, I just noticed that you highlighted Mon Sep 20 15:47:11 PDT 1999
I'm not sure where that date comes from, but it's different than the date result. the time/date setting was working correctly on the system.

Could you explain why you think the TOD battery could cause the system to shutdown, or are you saying, you think that probably isn't the cause now?
