Soleus 1.0 GPS watch – free software is an energy hog!

I was wondering my my laptop’s CPUs’ temps were high, so I looked at Windows Task Manager.  The free software that I used to download data from my Soleus 1.0 GPS watch was using 47% of the CPU resources!  And I wasn’t using the software directly, it was just “on”.  As soon as I shut it down, my CPUs’ temps fell by 20 degrees Celsius in a minute.

What’s going on here?!?!?!?
