VBoxNetDHCP.exe wakes up CPU every 1ms, drains battery and makes noise

When VBoxNetDHCP.exe is running on my Win 7 32bit system, my laptop makes a high pitch noise (~1KHz) and the battery drains a lot faster than when it is not running. My suspicion is that VBoxNetDHCP.exe is waking up CPU every 1ms, also when no VM is active. I do not see a reason to do that in a DHCP daemon. Hence I see this as a defect/opportunity for improvement.
