At what time does it deactivate. If you don't know, run the following
in a console for the night:

  while ping -nc1; do sleep 10; done && date

and look at that console again in the morning.

Also, what's deactivation? What does `ifconfig eth0` say? Is the
interface still UP and does not have an IP assigned, or any other
combination of the two?

what does this output: `pidof dhclient`
in the morning?

finally, can you confirm that your DHCP server remains operable
throughout the night?
