Maybe using the ~ds search string will disable sleep and allow indexing of the most books possible overnight. I just learned of this string yesterday and do not know whether it merely disables the sleep screen being displayed or actually disables sleep.

Of course, if it disables sleep, the battery will drain faster if it is not being charged. Also, the only way that I know to revert the ~ds state is to restart the Kindle, but that seems a small price for maximizing indexing rate for a large number of books, if it works.
