Domain Controller

I have a network running 2003 Server, with approx. 300 computers. (win95 - winXp Pro)This past week 5 or 6 different conputers (xp pro) have randomly lost their connetion with the domain controller, not allowing me to log on. To fix the problem, I would log on locally, join a workgroup, rejoin the domain, reboot the computer, and everything works fine. Any idea as to why so many computers have randomly lost their connection with the domain controller?

check the power settings.
by default it "enables the machine to turn off the network card to save power"
properties of network connection | configure adapter | power management
untick the box.

Also try to check the Windows XP Pro workstation's event log
