I'm not sure if this is the right spot for this (if its not, just move it?).

Now i bought a MacBook Air a few months ago and started having problems with it.

1. Shuts down randomly when not plugged in (it's not the battery.)
2. Will not turn on without charger. (Yet again, It's not the battery.
3. upon time + date will be reverted to December 1, 2011

I had taken it in once to BestBuys GeekSquad (there is no Apple store near my location) and had said that they "fixed" some drives or something. The problem stopped for a few weeks and continued as of yesterday.

My Mac information:

Model Name: MacBook Air
Model Identifier: MacBookAir3,2
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 1.86 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 2 GB
Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
Boot ROM Version: MBA31.0061.B01
SMC Version (system): 1.66f54

Anyone have this same problem?
Anyone know of any solutions?

Why do you think it's not the battery?
