Top suspects would be:

1: Amount of space devoted to System Restore

2: Amount of space devoted to hibernation file

3: Amount of space devoted to page file

4: Runaway program of some type, doing stuff you don't expect.

I'd definitely move the My Documents Folder onto an HD, if you can
and the My Music Folder as well, if you've got a lot of music installed

- they can both grow like mad, if you don't watch them..

System specs would also help us, especially the amount of RAM you have.
The amount of RAM affects hibernate and page file size.
Here's a tutorial by Brink to help posting that info:
