I can't think of any other logical explaination.  Does your clock loses time when it's on or when it's shut down for a while?

Ok, let's see if this make sense to you.

While your computer is off, it's up to the battery on the motherboard to keep time.  And when the computer is on, then it shouldn't be losing any time since it's now getting power from your power supply.  Maybe you should leave your computer on for several hours and see if it indeed doesn't lose time to confirm if it's the motherboard's battery.
