Windows XP and up have Remote Desktop built into the systems. You have to enable it on the client machine under control panel -> system -> remote -> allow -> add users ->and an account with a password.
Then you can go under start->programs->accessories->communications->remote desktop. Type the IP of the server in, configure the settings how you want, then connect. The login screen will come up and log you in. The drawback is you cannot interact with the current user's sesession, but you can grant full access to the system as if you were sitting right there on it.
As for WOL, I'm not entirely sure on support for that. Usually there's a BIOS setting or a special cable that goes from the NIC to the motherboard for it to happen. I'm not sure if you need some special programmed EPROM for it to all happen (I've never got it working before), but it's possible.
If you're behind a firewall and want to use remote desktop, you'll want to forward port 3389 to the system you want to remote desktop into. Though you can't do WOL behind a firewall. (I believe)
