I doubt it. Loss of time while running is due to interference from some
software installed on the system. The only time it is the CMOS battery is
when the time is wrong when the system is started, and this won't be a few
minutes, it'll be reset to the motherboards default starting time. Windows
picks up the time from the BIOS when the system is started, then uses its
own mechanism to keep track - it doesn't rely on the CMOS time until the
system is restarted.
Number one bit of software causing this problem are antivirus solutions. In
particular, Norton software is especially suspect.
