Actually, from what I understand, with the persistent connection, it is 
left open even after the script is finished - that's why it's called 
persistent.  Read this excerpt from the link I sent you:

mysql_pconnect() acts very much like mysql_connect() with two major 
First, when connecting, the function would first try to find a (persistent) 
link that's already open with the same host, username and password. If one 
is found, an identifier for it will be returned instead of opening a new 
Second, the connection to the SQL server will not be closed when the 
execution of the script ends. Instead, the link will remain open for future 
use (mysql_close() will not close links established by mysql_pconnect()).
This type of link is therefore called 'persistent'.
Note: Note, that these kind of links only work if you are using a module 
version of PHP. See the Persistent Database Connections section for more
