Panels will render themselves as divs.
You cannot disable or enable a div element.

If it's just about disabling input controls inside that div, you have to go trough each element inside the div and set the disabled attribute.
function disableDiv(divID) {

    var div = document.getElementById(divID)

    var fields = div.getElementsByTagName('input');

    for (var i=0; i < fields.length; i++)

        fields[i].disabled = true;
