    I'd get rid of Ubuntu and move onto other distros. This is way more of a headache than it should be and I applaud your persistence.

    I believe you can use the same method (as during install) to turn off all the acpi stuff. Ubuntu uses Grub 2 now and I'm not sure how to make it permenant.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Well, xubuntu is ubuntu just with XFCE as the desktop rather than Gnome so it may have the same issues.

    The most commonly recommended distros for new users seem to be:

    Linux Mint
    Ubuntu
    Mandriva
    openSUSE
    Fedora

    Have a look at distrowatch to get a better idea of what's out there. As to what I'm currently using; I'm trying to decide between Debian Testing or Linux Mint Debian Edition.

    I used openSUSE (Gnome) for quite a while and it's very nice in fact the only reason I stopped using it was a power failure to the PC when cleaning up my partition table!

    I'm not a fan of Fedora but Mandriva was dead easy to use when I last tried it. Another couple that I often recommend are Simply Mepis and Zenwalk which is based on Slackware but is maybe not so beginner friendly
