I have a Ubuntu 12.04 desktop virtual machine ran by VMWare and having some issue with the GUI clock/time what ever it is called. The thing in the right corner showing the time.
When I put the laptop in sleep mode, it does not put the virtual machine to sleep nor suspend it and when I reopen the laptop, the same day or the following day, the clock is still at the time of the sleep mode action. Eg: I put the laptop to sleep at 4:45 PM, when I reopen it, the virtual machine is still at 4:45 PM, and will stay like that until... something.
I've found a way to "fix" it by going to the date and setting and just pressing ok, and then it synchronizes it within the next 5-10 minutes. But still it annoys me and I was wondering if there is a way to force the GUI clock to synchronize. From my setting it is synchronized with Internet but it does not synchronize often and having to go to the settings, and then having to wait at least 5 mins kind of annoys me.
So I was wondering if there is a way to force the synchronization from command-line?
I do have read this post but that wasn't the same problem and that was the closest question I found that was a bit similar to mine.
