I'm not understanding what's going on with this OS, I was on a chat on Discord and I saw that my date was set 3 days forward (feel like Back to the Future ), some seconds later I opened the taskbar and date returned to normal. Moreover audio was disabled, none was working, a song that I usually play had no audio and same for any online audio.
Note that this happened after opening laptop screen, maybe this detail can help.
If time is set to autosync with internet, having it update like that when out of sync is common, and having the time be out of sync is common as often linux and firmware are using different time such as utc / gmt.
For audio, its possible the audio system was put to sleep with the laptop lid closed, and the service failed to wake up, if this is the only time its happened could be the audio playing when put to sleep caused it to crashed ect, might be best to just reboot and see if audio comes back. I had this happen a lot with my gpu's hdmi, and haven't had it happen since going to dp and optical out.
BIOS/Firmware generally do not recognize time-zones - So it will keep a different system time from the os time, if the os can not connect online it will default to the system time, until it can update. Usually its only a couple of hours. Also the bios and OS are often in UTC and GMT causing further confusion
I see the exact same behaviour in my automobile dash cam as well. If I power the camera at the work bench the time is off by an hour. Take it to the car and hook up to the GPS then the time is corrected.
well as i mentioned in my topic, it is wether a zorin nor a ubuntu problem, as i have the issue with a fedora based distribution too, and im going back to zorin, as i had with it the best experience with it handling nvidia drivers. The problem is the grub bootloader, so that im going to dualboot zorin with like void linux and make void linux the distributor of a different bootloader like systemd boot or something, something that works on bios.
