Chad,
The post workout window for carbs is important primarily for endurance athletes, and/or athletes who have got more than one workout in a set time period.

For protein, it's largely the same. Glycogen re synthesis, and protein synthesis is an ongoing process. I think Darryl had a post showing glycogen re synthesis can take up to 21 hours.

Lyle McDonald goes into this fairly often at his forum and in several of his articles.
