Of course, if you change Evaluatable from the menu, the cells appearance will change in sync, so you always have to use the buttons to turn it on or off. I have found that changing the Opacity of the cell to 50% works well when I set Evaluatable->False. It lets me see the syntax highlighting and the dim appearance makes it clear that it does nothing (well, it looks dim on a Mac. On Windows XP, it just looks a little foggy.) Here is the code for creating the two buttons: EvaluateButton = Button["Cell Evaluatable", SelectionMove[SelectedNotebook, All, Cell]; SetOptions[NotebookSelection[InputNotebook], Evaluatable -> True, Opacity -> 1]; , Appearance -> "Palette", ImageSize -> Small]; NotEvaluateButton = Button["Cell Not Evaluatable", SelectionMove[SelectedNotebook, All, Cell]; SetOptions[NotebookSelection[InputNotebook], Evaluatable -> False, Opacity -> 0.5]; , Appearance -> "Palette", ImageSize -> Small]; In both cases, the button function makes sure that the whole cell is selected, then sets Evaluatable and Opacity. Put these buttons in a Grid and use CreatePalette, then save the resulting palette.
