the vista clock was frozen.. but when i moved the mouse, it adjusted to the right time.. is that normal?

how i knew is the right bottom tray time was right, but vista clock was few hours old..

(screen saver kicks in 10 minutes and turn off mode in 20 minutes and no sleep mode)

is this a screensaver clock?  some of the cheap versions do this.  they give you the right time and then when your away long enough it freezes.  it is really normal.  then when you change the mouse it gives you the updated time.  it is normal.  if you mean the vista gadget clock, same thing i think.  it prevents the cpu from always running and saves battery time i think.

I think is is related to the display driver or graphic method of the application.

Check your Device Manager for any error, try update the display driver by using one that compactible with Vista. Also try update Directx on that computer.

it is the vista dock clock - i thought it is part of the OS- does it still need it's own drivers?

>>display driver or graphic method of the application.
are you referring to monitor's drivers? or video card?

you can try updating your video drivers but i am pretty sure this is just normal for windows.  it does it so that when your away, it's not consuming all the power from the cpu to run the clock.  then when you return you get to see the updated time.  it's normal.
