After closing, eM Client runs in background for several minutes

When i close eM Client it closes promptly but continues to run in the background for several minutes. This means that every time my computer goes to sleep i have to wait for over 10 minutes for a database check when restarting. It also means that i have to close eM Client almost 5 minutes before a manual shutdown, or else it won’t be finished running at shutdown and will have to check the database after rebooting.

This is without emptying anything from trash at shutdown.
