There are a multitude of things that could cause this.
If the machine is setup to search for updates, or a/v scans in the evening and the machine is never on at that time, the search/scans will resume when the machine is turned on in the morning. Most av applications are resource hogs and will make alot of machines appear sluggish when the scan is running in the backround.

is this a work machine within a domain, or a home machine?

I'm betting you have a start-up scan running at full throttle and/or a ton of other start up stuff that is trying to load.

You might try the old and trusted "msconfig" routine and disable all but the essentials. Then, see how the machine boots up.

Be sure to do that at the end of the day, just before shutdown, so you can go into the cold boot up in the morning, replicating the normal cold start. You should be able to start tracking it that way.

Good Luck!
