Disable indexing (search) = longer battery life!

Hi all,

This is my first post/thread w/e.
I have a ton of books on my Kindle and I was having major trouble with the indexing/re-indexing of all my books causing dramatic battery loss and lock-ups. Personally, I think maybe the Kindle deliberately indexes books from sources other than the kindle bookstore improperly as a disincentive for people to use those sources.

Anyway, I found a way to disable the indexing all together! I'm really happy with it and my Kindle doesn't lock-up so often. It also dramatically increases my battery life.

The indexing is controlled by a flag in the file /opt/amazon/ebook/bin/start.sh on line 176:
-DENABLE_SEARCH_INDEXING_THREAD=true \

I hope some of you guys will find it useful.

Cheers!
