Though i have not actually used this program it looks like it would do as you wish for a minimal price and without having to install software on all of the machines.

Shutdown, with "shutdown" command in windows cmd, you can write a bat or type "shutdown /i" to add computers.

Wake on lan, you need to enable this in the BIOS and in the network card (inside the windows device manager on power management), then use http://www.matcode.com/wol.htm
