Windows 7 Time Zone changes Notes Calendar Time

Problem is any calendar entry in Notes ( v 9) changes it's time when the Windows 7 time zone changes.

For example, I live in Pacific Time...so let's say I create a calendar entry for 9am for next Monday on the east coast.
So then I travel to the Eastern Time zone, and my Windows Time changes from PST to EST...the Notes Calendar entry also changes it's time from 9am to 12p.

Basically, we just want Notes to stop using Windows time settings just for the calendar...is there anyway to do this?

Normal windows based applications pickup time settings from system only unless applications have any application specific setting where you can define time settings
Its not possible as far as I know.

Internally the time is so many seconds after the epoch of the operating system. This time is in UTC.. When I was on a support case (the user was in Bangladesh) he asked me to contact him between 1500-1700 hrs.. If I attempted to call him at 1500 EST5EDT he had already gone home and was sleeping soundly.. So I'd suggest throughout the organization you standardize on a time zone.  I know in the Outlook Calendar you can click on the time zones icon and set the time zone of the meeting Test EntrySee the reminder was 9 hours ago
When I was in the Communications Branch of the Military everything was UTC (Z Time) and not L (local time)

Think I figured it out...the Calendar entries were imported .ics files into Lotus Notes.

When the import happens, the calendar event( as expected) takes whatever is the current time zone.

Then with the Notes Calendar entry there is a section of the Calendar entry that lets you specify a time zone.

tried to give points evenly, but can't get back to that screen =\

Think the missing link to the solution was something as simple as just changing the time zone of the appointment which is an available option from within the Notes Calendar appointment.
