Slow after a while being on...

MB325LL 2.8Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo 8 GB 800 MHz DDR2 10.7.5 Lion
Crucial M4-CT128M4SSD2 Firmware 040H

After a few minutes(30+-)of being on, my system just gets super slow, I dont understand, system up to date. Once I turn it off/on, it gets super fast and then after a while again super slow.. any ideas? Thank you.

Do you see any change in the spotlight magnifying glass indicator? Could be Spotlight indexing periodically. Pop open the spotlight form and see if there's any message there.

No messages, actually yesterday was indexing my external HDD but it finished without any problems.
