Do you know if Windows is downloading updates or anything like that? Do you have an anti-virus program running? Perhaps it is downloading updates as well.

I would try playing with your firewall settings and getting a copy of hijack this or any other program that will allow you to look more closely at what is actually running. This may be a background program you cannot see from the task manager that is downloading. My thought her would be some type of malware downloader or something like that, but it is hard to say.
