    Not really but it probably won't help the heat issue. :eek:

    Having said that, you can damage the logic board if you reset it multiple times between restarts.

    Seriously? Is that any logic board or just the MBP? :confused:

    That's any logic board. FWIW, the consequences are still pretty rare but don't do it all the same. :)

    I've done it twice accidentally, with no dramas.

    I was thinking of doing it intentionally because I am getting tired of waiting for Apple to fix the whine on my MBP… :(

    Apple technicians are pretty good at working out whether a machine has been tampered with. I wouldn't bother. :)

    I don't think holding down the power switch while the battery is out would be considered tampering.

    Now if I used an X-acto knife to make a tiny cut across some circuitry, well then yeah.
