Lose connections to network drives, outlook after PC goes into sleep mode.  The only way I have been able to fix this has been to reboot the pc about 5 times.  It is very odd.

Sleep mode and networks never work too well. I think, if nothing else, you should to in to the properties of the network adapter and tell Power Management never to put the network card in sleep mode.

I agree with jimbecher's comment. Also I would put a GPO to disable XP Fast Boot.
