Guys I’ve got a question .
I usually unplug my X360 each time I turn it off and therefore whenever I turn it on again I find the Dashboard’s clock reset . does this affect the way I earn money in fable II ?

I think it will, why do you unplug your 360 after you turn it off though?

You don't need to unplug your 360...in fact, that's probably doing more harm than good due to excess wear and tear on the connectors.  Do you also unplug your microwave, toaster, or television when they're not in use?

I do the same (well, I don't unplug it, but I turn all my TV equipment off at the plug, it saves a load of money). It will mean you don't earn money when you're not playing. I just make sure I'm connected to xbox live before I play it and live updates the clock for me. If you don't have live, then you'll have to correct the clock manually before you play it.

Keep it plugged. Your 360 will be fine. ;)

Last night I had a power outage while playing Fable, and when I turned my 360 back on, and I wasn't connected to XBL anymore. So I'm running around doing things and I decide I should reconnect to XBL and I do so learning that my internet is working. The second I connect, my time must of switched, and all of a sudden I got around 135,000 gold. So it would probably just get you more money.

But I agree that you shouldn't keep unplugging your 360.

If you feel insecure about keeping your 360 plugged in, then maybe get a surge protecter? Then you can keep it plugged in with confidence.

Really? I have everything hooked up, and the computer on for at least half the day every day and my bill usually comes at $50.

Wow, I've unplugged my 360 almost since I got it.  Never realized it wasn't such a big deal.

You only get money every 5 minutes if you're conneced to XBOX live. With no internet connection I find my game gives me no money while I'm not playing it.

maybe it is becasue of your dashboard's Clock , whenever you connect to Xbox live your clock would be set other wise it reset each time to 12:00 PM .
