Wake sleeping OS X Tiger machine

I'm looking for a way to wake a sleeping Mac running OS X 10.4. I have enabled the "Wake for Ethernet network administrator access" checkbox and I have been trying to use normal wake-on-lan magic packets but these only work within about 60 of the Mac going to sleep.

From my searching it seems that the wake facility provided by Apple Remote Desktop is more reliable(?) but I would like to wake the machine from a Linux or preferably Solaris 9 machine - perhaps there is a tool that mimics the ARD wake command for these platforms? Or is it possible to keep it in a "shallow sleep" like the one it is in for the first 60 seconds after sleeping. I have tried setting the machine to never sleep, but I cannot guarantee that users of the machine will not do it manually.
