VirtualBox 4.1.18r78361 prevents Windows 7 host from sleeping/entering standby

Description

While VirtualBox is running, my Windows 7 host OS will not enter standby/sleep after the time of inactivity specified in my Windows power scheme has elapsed. When I close VirtualBox, Windows sleeps after the time specified in the power scheme. This problem started after I upgraded to 4.1.18r78361. This is very inconvenient because I like to keep my guest OS running, so I have to remember to put my host computer into standby whenever I leave the computer or it will needlessly stay on.

Same problem here with 4.2.18 but I don't think it ever worked in any version. Or maybe when I manually put the computer to sleep once, then it would work automatically until the next reboot. Can't remember what version that was (probably 4.1.x). But with 4.2.18 that does not help.
