Bad idea. How much ram does it have?

Maybe you should try and find out why, rather than using sticky tape ...

Depends on your configuration, of which you have not supplied *any* details.

No, most likely, you haven't configured a checkpoint on the database, and so 
database recovery is taking a long time.

For more assistance, provide all the configuration options that relate to the 
database backend you are using, and any tuning you have done for the library 
(DB_CONFIG file, or dbconfig directives in slapd.conf).
