How to troubleshoot scheduled auto power on issues

Does anyone have any tips on how to get Dell's scheduled power on feature to work reliably? For example, in a lab of around 60 computers, 5-10 of them will stop powering themselves on after a couple months.  Computers we currently have that are affected are the 5040, 7020 and 7010. We also had the same issues with the 960, 980 and 990. It seems to happen regardless of firmware revision.  Fixing the issue requires going into the bios and turning the feature off, then turning it back on again.  Hoping to narrow down what triggers this glitch.
