Take your vitamins, but when?

When should I be taking my multi-vitamin? When I wake up, before I sleep or some time in between?

I take one multi-vitamin a day and I am wondering if there are any benefits for taking it at a specific time. I don't take any other supplements so I am not worried about the spacing between different supplements, I would just like to know when the best time to take this one multi-vitamin is.
During the day I'm active, working, etc. so it makes some sense to take the multi-vitamin in the morning with my breakfast so that I have access to the vitamins it contains throughout the day.
But, during sleep is when the body does all its regeneration, and so it makes sense (to me) to take the multi-vitamin with my supper before I go to sleep.
Is there an actual better time to take this multi-vitamin or will it not matter, just as long as I am taking it with food?
I'm a healthy, 30-ish male if that helps.
