Well something is malfunctioning, or something is running in the background dragging down your performance. Run Activity Monitor and see if anything is using an abnormal percentage of your CPU. Also… can you tell us what apps you are loading on startup? You can get this from your Accounts preference pane.
Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
