I want to automate the OCR process for Adobe Pro to OCR all the PDF's in a folder every night.  Any way to do this?

To automate this, you either have to buy the LifeCycle product from Adobe, use a program like AutoIT or Eventghost and mimick user input, or use a more robust OCR engine with these features available.  

There is no way to easily automate the Batch OCR within Adobe Pro.
