    Time Zone keeps changing
    I am just getting started using my new macbook (using OSX 10.5.5), and I can't keep the time zone from slipping back to GMT, so my e-mail and calendar events are listed as 5 hours later than they should be. I go into the time zone menu and change it to EST. It shows up on the map as EST, but when I close the window it resets itself to GMT, regardless of whether I've locked it or not. Help! I've searched the Help menu, but can't find anything useful. Thanks!

    13" MBA. 15" MBP. iPhone 4. 3G Pad 2.
    System Prefs > first tab > date & time > did you tick set date & time automatically? then set the closest time.apple.com. probably Europe.
    The next tab ~ set the closest city in your time zone.
    Restart your Mac to check that the setting stay. If not please come back.

    I am having the same issue. I tried what was recommended and it is still slipping back to GMT. The time itself stays to what I set it but the time zone slips back. I do not set automatically to apple time. any other suggestions??

    Thanks

    Did you click the lock to prevent any changes?
