Gonna let Wireshark run for about 30 minutes to see if anything shows up.

I've pinged it and get no reply, but some things don't reply to a ping,
they? Or because I used an actual IP address in the ping, is that a
definitive answer that it's not in use because I got no reply?
No, it's not definitive. Some devices deliberately don't answer ping.
It could also be rebooting, sleeping, powered off or showing the Blue
Screen of Death.
Is there a way? I'm on Windows 7.
I'd use Wireshark. Run it for a while and capture anything coming/going
to that IP address.
