What is the most straightforward way to wake up the Windows Server 2008 R2 machine at 8 am and hibernate it at 8 pm (Mon-Fri)?

If you don't have a wakeup setting in your bios then you may instead be able to enable wakeonlan and send the magic packet to wake it up from another machine.
To hibernate as a scheduled task you can download pstools from the microsoft site and use psshutdown -h http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896649.aspx
