Not sure about the options to achieve this.

You can post the requirement as an idea.

Yes Symantec Does not have Wake On Lan option. Even Microsoft System center does not . It has WOL only for OS deployment.

You can suggest products like nightwatchman from IE we have this for our SCCM

Not possible to schedule in any way from SEPM, best bet is to use the WOL from OS side, and some third party solution for shutting the machine down.
