Green Paradise have an 8am minibus from Champasak to Pakse with the trip taking a couple of hours, so unless your flight is early morning, no need to overnight.

Do we really need a few HOURS to get from Champasak to Pakse ??
I was in fact asking how to get from Don Khone to Pakse and how long this trip takes.

You will need to catch a boat from Don Khon to Ban Nakasang - about 20 minutes.
Then walk straight up the main drag to the bus station - about 10 minutes.
There are morning buses to Pakse - that take about 3.5 hours.
This website says that the first bus is at 7 am.
Then you'll need a tuk tuk to the airport: another 20 minutes.
You can buy both your boat and bus ticket on the island.
There are plenty of places to stay in Pakse, near the bus station.

Oops, I just noticed that your question is a year old.
I'll leave this here for others.
