    Well it moved you right off my forward looking RADAR. :notworthy

    1) Cycling on and off might cause dips in the current to your machines.

    Many motherboards are shipped with the CMOS jumper in the "clear" position, not the normal position. Check the markings on the board before you end up returning a perfectly good part.
