I have a pair of Manitou Mars Elite (85mm) forks on my Tomac Buckshot Pro, but since I've been using the bike regularly again - it was in storage (dry) for a while, I've had to pump the forks up every time I leave the house, as the pressure has dropped from 140psi to about 100.
Is this normal, or should I be concerned?

Any suggestions? Seals possibly?

I don't know anything about that fork. Does it use oil at all? If so it may simply need a few rides for everthing to get "wet" again. Having said that, I'd be you're looking at a trip to the shop to order seals so you can replace them or let them do the work for you. I want to say that my favorite shop charges $60-70 for fork overhaul as long as you don't require major repair work/parts.
