So 56 load cycles per hour would be a bad number?

In November, I was told by Ubuntu Forum staff that I didn't have to
worry about this, since laptop mode is disabled by default and I don't
have it installed. Was I told wrong?
If your product is destroying users' hardware, this should be a TOP
priority for fixing. If you're not going to fix it, the very least you
could do is include a script that checks for inordinate numbers of load
cycles, warns the user, and points them to ways to fix it. An obscure
link to a confusing wiki page is not good enough.
