Well considering that the gravity of Mars is less than that of Earth, and there isn't enough moisture in the air to make the dust cake onto the rover, dust is attracted to electrical charges, and there is proficient wind on Mars, my theory is this:
At night, the rover shuts down, the electrical charge on the metal disperses, no longer pulling dust to it. The wind, which is there all along, blows the dust off the rover much more easily than it would on Earth because of the lighter weight, and the lack of moisture.
Seems pretty cut-and-dry to me.
