Default weak bios battery?

Well my pc has been doing something wierd lately. When i shut down the pc for a while, and turn back on, i think the cmos becomes corrupted. i have a abit av8 3rd eye, and what happens is my mobo beeps few times, shuts down and continues beeping till i unplug the PSU. When i clear CMOS, it works fine, but this is annoying... I think the information is leaking out the batery as pc is off because the pin on it maybe isnt shorting them completely? any ideas guys?

My current specs:
i7 920
Biostar TPower x58
3x2GB g.skill
XFI GTX260 Black Edition
640 WD Caviar Black
Vista Home Premium x64
