Just some thoughts.

1. Does the power supply cable go directly from the power supply to the wall socket. No extension cords or the like.

2. You power switch or its harness and connections on the case could have a short (power to ground)
That could account for the shaking helping sometimes and also the bios time and date not being correct. The prower to ground short would drain the motherboard cmos battery when the computer is off.

I would start with replacing the motherboard cmos/bios battery on the motherboard.

Then set the proper time and date in the bios and Windows.
Pay close attentions on how well/tight the battery fits.

It sounds like it might be a loose fit.
I know you posted you replace the battery but it can't hurt to make sure it is installed properly and tight.
Anytime you shake a computer so it will work something is loose.
