Can Windows Desktop Search Indexing be Scheduled?

Windows Desktop Search ver 4.0 grinds Outlook 2007 to a halt!  Periodically, when the user receives an email, the notebook will cease to respond for approximately 30 seconds while the indexing runs.  Is it possible to schedule the Windows Desktop Search indexing process to take place overnight?  We have discussed the advantage of overnight indexing and would like to proceed with scheduling it to do that, but I don't know if this particular utility will support such a thing.

We have noticed real improvement by removing Indexing from Microsoft Outlook but, considering the endless amount of email the user receives and has to sort through, he absolutely requires the Desktop Search function to work.  This is a high-ranking user who frequently works out of the office, so my request is urgent please.

Any thoughts?  Thanks very much,

you could use a Scheduled Task to stop and start the Indexer service.  
NET START and so on...
