How to keep date and time up to date after resuming from sleep mode

If you’re running Ubuntu Linux within a VM, time and date may not be accurate after resuming from sleep mode.

timedatectl provides a way to display and modify date and time information.

To get full details about the current date/time/time zones settings :

timedatectl status

Syncing date and time information with a ntp server is relevant.

timedatectl set-ntp true

To see the modification in effect :

timedatectl status

The NTP service information should be updated from inactive to active.
