I've had a bad battery manifest problems in many ways, not just losing
time while powered down. Most recently I was having random problems and
odd instability with a system. It was rock solid after replacing the
battery. It's wasn't as bad as old Macs which completely lost their
minds if the battery was bad, but along similar lines. If it's bad
replace it or temporarily swap in a good one to see it it helps.
