Methods to wake up a hibernated PC?

We are in the process of researching the best options to hibernate our campus workstations instead of powering them off, so that we can formulate a nightly Windows workstation patching strategy.  If we hibernate systems is it possible to wake them up without using Wake On Lan features, or is this the only way?  Then what WOL utility is the very best for enterprise wide workstation wake ups?  We're not talking about thousands of computers...more like about 500 PCs?

I can't think of a way without using the WOL feature.  Here are a couple of different utilities to do it:
