Same here!
@Chase Douglas: I don't know what you're talking about... what hard
switches? There are no hard switches in these laptops. Just throw in 9.04 or
windows and the "hard locks" are magically gone... I hope this rings a bell.

@All: Unfortunately this is likely a kernel bug. My personal experience with
bugs like this is that no one from Ubuntu team is capable of fixing those.
This type of problems tends to go away with fresh kernel releases... Someone
from Ubuntu will pop up here once in a while with "Is it still in Ubuntu
X.XX?" and that's it. Move on, nothing to report here...
