How do I remotely turn on windows 8/8.1 tablet?

I have placed tablet in gate system.
Unfortunately it is in the very hard to reach without disasembling gate.
And let's say power is out every weekend, so tablet discharges and turns off/sleeps.
Is there any software that I can use to remotely turn on tablet, when it is charged? I don't  want to use UPS,
Tablet model: Lenovo ThinkPad 10 20C1

Ok, wireless might work also, please read http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee851581(v=ws.10).aspx to see what has to be set in windows to make it possibly work.

If that doesn't work, consider using scheduled tasks to wake it. As the name suggest, this would need to be scheduled, it cannot be done on demand.
