Check the error log for clues. If that doesn't reveal anything, set up a script (using cron or Task Scheduler) to attempt to log in every few minutes during the night, to see if there is a consistent time of failure. Look for any other scheduled tasks that might occur around the same time -- DNS refresh, system backups, etc.
