We can go back forth and discuss but in the end it is up to Ubuntu team to fix this or find some solution. If Ubuntu is really serious of giving the public a serious alternative to Windows well this would be a good start.
Many people today are going away from the big towers to laptops and portables so fixing this issue could bring more user's over to Linux and Ubuntu in general.
I do feel Ubuntu Hardy is a better system then Vista but this issue has to be fixed.
When this is fixed I will recommend Ubuntu to laptop user's right away but as I stated earlier I cannot do that with this bug present.
