Are you using any 3rd party modules (i.e. ones from e_modules)? There was a 
thread a week or two ago about the cpu / mem modules slowly increasing their 
cpu usage over time. I believe this was fixed though.

If that isn't the problem, then make sure everything in your tree is up to 
date. Disable all of your modules and run for a bit. If that fixes things, 
slowly re-enable them one by one to try to find the culprit.

Also, after running overnight, do you actually have to reboot the entire 
system or just restart e17 / X?
