How do I restore a connection to a VM Windows 2008 Server

The 2008 server is a file server, printer server.  It is on a HP Proliant Server.  When I came in the server was pingable, but I could not connect to it via a terminal services program we use to manage our network servers.  I need to know how to use the VMware desktop client to "wake it up"  I am new to VMware and do not want to mess anything up.  The system was set up by someone else and runs nicely most of the time.  But on occasion it is unavailable.

Thank you.  Basically I needed to get there to see what was up, because all my services seemed to be off line, the one that was brought to my attention first off was all our printers were offline.....
I don't know if you also use vSphere vCenter but you can also connect to vCenter Web Services, it might be quicker, if you don't have the vSphere client installed.

Just point your browser at you https://vcenter-server-name/ui/#

I have the vSphere client on my workstation.  That is how I connect.  Thanks!
