Ubuntu default acpi-support values kills laptops (fixed)

Well, it took awhile but someone finally got around to fixing the laptop harddisk munching bug I ran into in September 2007. It has been released for Ubuntu versions 9.04, 8.10 and 8.04 (LTS).

This fix is not yet in the update repositories, so if you want to run it you need to use the 'proposed' repository, follow these instructions for enabling the 'proposed' repository.
