Squeak Daemon: Why doesn't Squeak sleep with zero cpu usage?

When squeak (version Squeak3.6g-5420.image) is idle and simply sitting on the screen it's cpu usage drops to hover near 2%. Why? Is there any way to have squeak actually go to sleep? Is this possible even when squeak is listening on network ports? This is important when running multiple copies of squeak on a server. When running 50 copies of squeak idle on a server they consume all the cpu cycles! 

How can I configure (or how can we change) squeak to run as a good "daemon server" citizen?

All the best,
