The file you could look into is /var/log/messages:
cat /var/log/messages | more
Now hit “/” to search for today’s date, replacing spaces by "\ ", i.e. a backslash, a space, this for each space, so “Oct\ 11”. Look for the start of the last boot, then hit space and see if you see something going on for a long time.
