Plus if you are journalling/auditing you may want to only change your 
system time after bringing the system to a restricted state - and maybe 
in the fall you would no restart it for an hour to make sure you 
wouldn't have any duplicate time stamps or show entries going 'back' in 
time.

Kenneth,

Please tell me you aren't comparing OS/400 and Win95!!!!

Anyway, I would never want the 400 to change my system time for me. 
Why?
Simple, most (all) of my customers' job streams are not setup to allow 
for
mid-run changes in time. The second record written WILL be written at a 
later point in time than the first record written seems like a 
reasonable
assumption to me. You need a human with an understanding of the weekend 
job
stream to say what time it is appropriate to change the system time.

Also, some companies have legal requirements on when they can change 
the
system time and must have the change witnessed, silly but true.

-Walden
