Detect if computer on local domain is reachable

I am able to enumerate all of the computers on my domain using LDAP and wscript. Now what I would like to do is determine which ones are currently powered on/reachable over the network. I would use ping except that it does not give reliable results. For example, if one of the domain members is using DHCP, sometimes the IP address is different on the machine than it is in DNS. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.
