Depending on your hardware, it might have some.  For instance our Dell 
hardware comes with the DRAC interface, which is basically a small computer 
inside the computer, which we can use via telnet and other interfaces to get 
console, power switching, and other.

Other options could be NPS (network power strip), to simply toggle the power.  
Or a KVM over IP solution.
