Check the section TWO of the SANDER manual:
"weight change information".
Using the ELEC or VDW variables you can modify the
relative weight of the electrostatic or the van der
Waals terms, and do exactly what you want.
I am wondering however in which case turning off the
van der Waals interactions may be useful ?
hope this helps
