Please don't do that. I'm not sure how much pressure would build up during active ferment while you're sleeping, but I'd hate for you to find out the hard way that it's too much for the corny to handle.

I ferment in 6.5 gallon buckets w/ s-airlocks. Some folks use carboys or better bottles.

Dude, just take the liquid post off and dip tube out, get a piece of hose that will fit over the post threads and run it into a jar full of starsan or vodka. Easy blow off and no risk of a nasty mess when the pressure blows the relief valve open.
