Looking for some confirmation. If UAC is disabled the "Run as Administrator" flat out doesn't do anything does it?

Other then being really annoying does UAC bring anything to the party?

lastly... is there a GPO to turn it on and set the level?

I have one network where I turn UAC off just because the users complain that they are always having to answer questions. No one is administrators of their local computers and as a result I am always having to log off and log back on as an administrator just to install or change stuff. What do others do? Leave UAC on so "Run As Administrator" works?
