    If I leave it for a few days turned off(not sleep mode) I need to plug it in to the AC adapter and it needs me to set the time and date. [​IMG]

    Is the battery charging?

    If it is then it is probably a faulty battery, like all rechargeables they get worse as they get older.

    This is not uncommon with older batteries, I've experienced it as well.

    Definitely either an old or third party battery. Get yourself a decent (not a cheap knock-off) replacement and problem solved.
