is it an old drive

if it is it could be a sign that it is failing. Having been off overnight? it has settled into its bearings and a certain amount of stiction takes place. When restarted it may not be getting fully up to speed and therefore the system will need much longer to read from it. If this sounds like the problem either borrow or buy a new drive and stick it in and see if this stops the problem.
