1) Windows 7 x64
2) Mining is disabled
3) The blockchain is synchronized

but still the CPU utilization changes from 10 to 50% - why so much?

hi
Your wallet is acting as a peer to peer node, that means its responding to requests
from other nodes to sync/verify blocks.  normally cpu is around 10% unless peers are asking you for blocks. You can monitor the network traffic and amount of data sent wih the debug window network and peer tab.

you can also limit the number of peers your willing to connect with using the -maxconnections flag (default is 125)

Thank you, really, after limiting incoming connections, the load dropped to normal values.
