What use is indexing? Is there a way to turn it off?

Indexing is what allows the Kindle to quickly search books, or even your entire library. I am not aware of any way to turn it off. May I ask why you'd want to do so?

What Harry said. Sometimes I need to search for a phrase in a book, or on the home page, see if I already put a particular title on my Kindle. If I search for "Oliver Twist" and don't see it there, then I will download it.

Everytime I sideload a new book on my Kindle, I plug it in for about ten minutes and it seems to hasten the indexing.

I've never used search so for me the indexing feature is wasted space and computing use. I've over a thousand books on my kindle but only 11 pages on my home screen organized into collections. It makes it easy enough to find the book I want. Given a choice between having an index and having hierological collections I would much prefer the second. Not being given a choice I still have no use for the index and would as soon get rid of it. I've occasionally while trying to jump to a page of my home screen had the kindle start to do a search for "10" instead of going to page 10. There doesn't seem a way to say stop I don't want to search that. You just have to wait. Annoying.

It does that if there isn't a page 10.

Forcing a restart with the power switch can be faster than waiting for the search to complete.

The kindle developers subforum may have a hack for noindexing

I noticed that switch off ( 6 sec push) the KPPW stops the indexing.
The indexing is runnning while KPPW displays a screensaver.

sometimes rebooting the device works for me. I seem to have issues with downloading audible and I have to do this
