Wake On Lan

I have a large number of PCs, (25,000), that do not have "Wake On Lan" enabled in the BIOS.  Is there a way I can enable this feature globally, without touching each computer?

Are they all the same type of pc?

I don't think it's possible to enable all PCs to use Wake on LAN but here's an article that might help. If the cable is not installed on NICs then you will have to open the box.
