It would be wonderful if you could select layers based on what color they are with one command. We work in extented gamut. We assign cmyk channels to the first four colors layer and a second layer is assigned to the remaining 2 to 4 colors in the file. We assign the "second" layers a specific color. Right now we use layer comps to turn on and off the colored or uncolored layers. You have to update the layer comps as you add layers, or it doesn't work. The ability to select say all the orange layers and turn them on or off would be a real time saver. Some of our files are quite extensive and can have well over 150 layers. Thanks

You can do this in Photoshop CS6 using the new Layer Filter feature:
