so how is your macbook going? Do you remove logic board to do solder reflow with heat gun? And how do you do it?

@frazras, after overheating it starts. I turn it on and get grey screen and fans' noize. Put it on the sofa to overheat, after 2 - 10 restarts it loads OS. I can switch to integrated GPU with gfxCardStatus. After that it can work for several days without putting to sleep and restarting.

Is it possible to remove the discrete video card at all? I want it to work using integrated only.

comment Macbook Air + Lion + Windows 7 Boot Camp + shared partition
Julian, I am using exFat as a shared volume on my Mac Book Pro. For a year of using it I have already had 5 times some of my files got corrupted on the exFat volume. I'm assuming this is because of exFat is not so stable(I didn't have power offs or some stability problems, they just corrupted by themselves). I was only reading and writing files from both Windows 7 and Mac Os X Lion. So be aware of this filesystem is not so great as one may think. Will investigate your solution about using NTFS or HFS+ and most likely reformat my shared volume in one of these file systems.

I've followed this answer and am using exFat as a shared volume on my Mac Book Pro. For a year of using it I have already had 5 times some of my files got corrupted on the exFat volume. I'm assuming this is because of exFat is not so stable(I didn't have power offs or some stability problems, they just corrupted by themselves). I was only reading and writing files from both Windows 7 and Mac Os X Lion. So be aware of this filesystem is not so great as one may think. Although I didn't find a good alternative yet.

@DanielLawson, thanks. This is probably the most elegant solution. Upvoted your answer and merged it into Aaron's answer as method #3.

@dennis.hempler, thanks I know this. Actually I will run this script often. Because USB-modem device needs this file to be blank to operate properly. So before inserting USB-modem I erase the file and before connecting to wired internet I write those options in the file.

@DanielLawson, I've created a text file with contents: do shell script "~/vpn_enable.sh" with administrator privileges. Then renamed it to .app file. When I double-click it I get: You can't open the application AppleScritpTest.app because the Classic environment is no longer supported.

Why did you revert my edits? In my question I was asking about double-clicking without running terminal and manually typing. And edited your answer appropriately.
