This is something that I reoprted as a bug a couple of months ago. Ben
seems to be having trouble identifying any cause as it shouldnt be
I have just noticed that you are the second person other than me with
this problem that has a Nforce based motherboard. Ill add a comment to
the bug report suggesting it as a possible canditate for the problem.
In the meantime, you might want to post a comment on the bug saying
"me too", the more people who can specify their hardware the better
chane we have of finding the fix.
The bug report is here:

I just thought, if you still have a Breezy install (or from breezy
Live CD) it might be worth running the hardwaer database tool that
identifies all your hardware. when it gives you your identifier
number, attach it to the bug report. I will do the same too tonight.
The hardweare tool is in Applications --> System Tools --> Ubuntu
Device Database
