My New iBook G4 is screwed now...

The issue started while I was away for vacation at Block Island. I would unplug the power cord, and in the middle of doing something it was just shut off. No warning. Just blackness. I plug it back in, boot up, and the date & my network settings are whiped. It does this whenever I unplug it from the power adaptor now.

Symptoms:
- unplugging power adaptor shuts off laptop.
- after booting up my date & network settings are whiped.
a. date reset to December 1969 in iCal... And in my system bar it says it's reset to 2001, and I should change it.
b. network settings gone.

Time to call Apple. I just got this thing November 23, 2005.

This is the iBook G4 1.33GHz, 512k level 2 cache, 512MB of DDR SDRAM, 40GB Ultra ATA hard drive.

P.S. - Resetting the PRAM did not fix it.

Update: Now I wait for the delivery of my box to send back my laptop for repair.
