    I wouldn't be so sure, some connections can 'hang' and stick around for days. As I said, the only way to be sure is to check the computer management MMC and the event log.

    I couldn't see anything in the event log. I've reinstalled the printer and I'll see if that has solved the problem.

    network card power saving

    First thing that came to mind for me knowing it's a client and not a server was to check in Device Manager on the network card and ensure it is unchecked to be controlled by power settings.

    The computer doesn't turn off at all so will that still need to be checked?

    Yes it does. XP can suspend the power to a USB port if it's not being used
