Indexing

I'm a leisure reader. In the 6 months or so that I've had my Kindle (DXG) I haven't needed to search once. Indexing, however, has been a right pain, happening when I don't expect it and draining the battery.

So here's the question; can I turn indexing off?

No. It happens when you add new books to the device.

If it only happened then I wouldn't care about it.

I thought I recall a thread here or on another board on how to avoid indexing.

But as written above, it should not always be indexing. If a book has stalled, you should identify it and then delete and reload it.

It's not always, but since the 2.5.8 "upgrade" a re-start seems to force a full re-indexing. I won't be doing any re-starts for a while if I can help it.

I have searched for a way to disable indexing without success. If any one can point me at a thread I'd be grateful.

Thanks.

There is this thread in the Developer's Section about somebody who disabled indexing

You might try bumbing it up and asking if it is still valid for you DX/Firmware before trying it.
