I don't think NetBSD currently has much in the way power
management for sparc based machines. Also, I don't know if the SS5 and
SS20 have the necessary hardware support. Can Solaris tell these
machines to wake up at a certain time?

You can use net/wakeup or net/wol from pkgsrc for this purpose.

I don't know if these machines have the necessary hardware
support. One major clue is to see if the switchport to which the
machine is plugged has a light on when the machine is turned off.
