Schedule Wolex? Going from "great" to "superb"

Im trying to get people here at the office to use Wolex. And it works great! Reason is we need the computers to set to "sleep after 1 hour", but running about and slapping Spacebar everytime we need to wake them up is... cumbersome.

But when the machines actually needs to be working all night at some complex render - and they fall asleep anyway. Hence my request/question now:

Can Wolex be scripted? Put in "Scheduled Tasks"? What I want to do is just send a "wake on lan" every five minutes to all computers. And also be able to turn this net-send-machine-gun ON and OFF when the machines are acctually meant to sleep.

Would that be possible? Can Wolex be put in Windows7's "Schedueled tasks"?

I hope this has not been covered before, I tried searching the forums for postings about this.

Cheers and thanks in advance,
