OS2 Status Page clock error

This is not a big problem, but I just noticed it this week and been watching it a bit closer. Looking at the clock display on the Status Page, OS2 Info section, the clock is rapidly loosing time.

I'm not sure where the problem is, but the longer I have the OS2 web site open, the clock slows down - a lot. Like 5-10 minutes an hour. I can do a sync on the Network page and it's back correct, for a very short while. If I close the website and reopen it, the clock is within a few seconds of current time, again for a very short while.

Something appears to be stealing update cycles for the clock display via the web interface. I do have the OS2 in the power saver mode, if that helps.

The web interface loads the time from the OS2 only when you open the web interface. After that, the browser is updating the clock display and if the browser, or the web interface's tab is sent to the background then the time will be updated more irregularly due to the browser's CPU power saving. Just reload the web interface if the clock display's inaccuracy bothers you. This does not affect the OS2's clock, it will stay correct.
