If you solved this issue yourself could you please post the solution? A lot of people have this kind of laptop, we need to document well!

It only happens after closing glxgears. Sorry for the confusion. Another issue I'm having is occasionally when using optirun Ubuntu gives me a "System error has been detected" box, and asks me to send and error report. Should I send the report to them? Is there some way to get it for you? I haven't experienced any issues after seeing it, but it pops up occasionally.

I was just now able to get on and didn't see you. This week is going to be fairly busy for me, but if you can let me know when you're typically on in EST time I'll try to get on.

This time rebooting brought up unity fine, so I guess I have no issues! As soon as you confirm there isn't a more efficient method to load glx I'll update the question and mark it solved. This is my first question so I'm not sure if marking it solved beforehand will lock you out from commenting... :?

It loaded in the display console perfectly! The hardware-accelerated effects all work, including maximizing the window by dragging top/left/right. I can run glxgears and get around 59.7 FPS, and optirun glxgears gets me around 500 FPS. That's about half what optirun gave me before, but I'm guessing it's because of the juice the new hardware effects take up? Now I just need to figure out why unity didn't start with the machine. First step, reboot. I'll be right back. --side note, adding -l to the ls did give me that. Is this the proper directory to use? Is there a problem with my method?
