    I have the same issue as others and think its energy saver i think the problem is related to cataline which now splits a system to two internal volumes

    / = the root volume defualts as /volume/Macintosh HD
    and /System/Volumes/Data which is mounted to various directorys on root

    /volume/Macintosh HD is mainly system stuff which the user doesnt need to access it also contains the default macOS apps.
    and /System/Volumes/Data is all the data which the user(s) can change and access thirdpary apps, home directories etc

    this is how spotlight should be on a defualt catalinea system [sometimes you will have timemachine volumes aswell when its running]

    > sudo mdutil -sa
    /:
    Indexing enabled.
    /System/Volumes/Data:
    Indexing enabled.​

    sometimes i find after i plugin in the power cable that System/Volumes/Data isnt re-enabled and sometimes its both volumes that fail to reenable.

    >mdutil -s -a
    /:
    Indexing disabled.
    /System/Volumes/Data:
    Indexing disabled.

    /Volumes/.timemachine/Rendezvous._smb._tcp.local./6A9FBFD7-D3AB-49CC-84A8-2D107EB28BB3/Time Machine Folder:
    No index.
    /Volumes/Time Machine Backups:
    Indexing enabled.
    /Volumes/Time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb:
    Indexing enabled.​


    this means that i can only find defaullt apps through spotlight (and applications which use the service such as Alfred), apps like office and parallels are missing and no documents. As explained i also find that those volumes are removed from search results as opposed to just pausing indexing so the system has to rebuild them once reenabled.

    No idea, I am using separate indervidual apps from third parties and features out of the box in macOS now.
