OK so I did know that about the ram but I'll have to check about how far it drifts it is around a couple hours off or so after one night the day had been fine though. I'll do a test and set it then see what it is in the morning. Does turning the calculator off affect it? It never ran dead.

No, turning the calculator off shouldn't matter. Does your clock program rely on startTmr and checkTmr or some other clock commands?
If it does, LogicalJoe found a bug in the OS last year that was added around version 5.4.0 which causes the clock to be off by a round number of days depending on the month (because the number of days in each month got shifted by 1 month)
The only fix for now is to correct the time by accounting for this bug (removing or adding days depending on which month it is)
That being said, if you're really talking about "a couple hours", then its not that. I wouldn't put it past TI to have introduced even more timer bugs though. Its not like the gregorian calendar has changed since 2003 when that code was initially written
