comment SBS 2003 loses Connection to specific clients if not running Ping -t
"we've put in a new switch and router and it still happens, so one assumes it's not an ARP issue in either" That is not a "solid" assumption if the ARP situation is induced by another device on the network. What about the ARP tables of the server and affected workstations during the occurrence?

comment vCenter Server power restore
Based upon what SpacemanSpiff pointed out, you should look through the HA settings to determine whether it has similar and/or overriding options.

Based on the additional information with DuPie's answer... Are the workstations with the varying success in accessing the server all on the same LAN? You might take a look at the ARP tables across the server, switch and workstations when this occurs.

comment Managing multi-timezone servers
It's basically the same time reference (time zone-wise and geographically), just UTC is based on an atomic timing reference - geography.about.com/od/timeandtimezones/a/gmtutc.htm.

comment Hibernating servers
I have not looked at it in detail to be honest (if the 2008 version somehow muddied up the terms), but "hibernation" is saving the memory state, then powering down the system - while "sleep" is going into a lower power mode with all supporting components (typically cpu and memory) or powering them down (typically hard drive, fans, etc.), then suspending processing.
