Awesome, I'm glad to hear that everything is working well for you.
Just one additional piece of information: From Maverick and on, Ubuntu defaulted to not use the -intel graphics driver for i8xx cards, because of all the bugs. It's using a framebuffer driver instead, which gives pretty sub-par performance and very few features. So if you find an issue with either of those, you should switch to use the -intel graphics driver instead. The Natty kernel contains the fix to the original problem, so you can safely use the -intel driver again. This is exactly what I'm doing with my Natty install and it's running wonderfully, no problems at all.
To use the -intel driver instead of the fbdev framebuffer driver, just make an xorg.conf file
and paste the following into it
gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Save, reboot, enjoy.
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
If you need to revert you can just delete the xorg.conf
Of course, if you're happy with Natty the way it is, please don't feel urged unnecessarily to switch video drivers. It's your computer, so you should do whatever you want with it. Just wanted to make sure you had all the info.
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
