SystemUIServer – Recover RAM
I have been having the same problem, and today I also noticed my clock hadn't been showing the correct time in about 2 hours, and when I hover over the clock I get the spinning beach ball. So I found from this article that you can simply kill the SystemUIServer process and it will just restart itself and all should be well again. Once you kill the process, OS X will simply re-initiate the process, and you should be back on track.
However this seems to be only a temporary solution, and you may encounter it again.

Have had experience with proprietary mainframe software - doing some housekeeping that didn't show in its job lob - but took 45 minutes every night based on logs - as looking at the job while it ran just looked like it is sitting there so wondering if the cleanup triggered one of the UNIX cleanup jobs.
Oh - after a slow power up rather than fighting with the monitor getting stuck - immediately doing a restart clears the problem. I have seen this same issue through El Capitan so I feel there is a trigger for whatever is running - the logs seem to show nothing out of the ordinary - as I looked at older logs for comparison if they exist and they have the same stuff.
