hwclock --debug produced NO error message 

looked at the /etc/init.d/halt script,
the command or process is 

 /sbin/hwclock --systohc --localtime

the command line run of this command is ok
but during halt, it failt, showing

Syncing hardware clock to system time     [FAILED]

i want to try set time in the bios, what key to trigger bios setup?
