VMware Vcenter schedule power off/on for all VMs

I am searching for some mechanism to schedule power off/on for all vm present in a cluster/Resource Pool via any possible way.

In my lab we have setup of around 500 vm's in an around 6-8 resource pool and some time we need to shutdown all or per resource pool VMs, so for now we do this in two ways :

  1. shutdown each and every VM manually or
  2. schedule each and every VM in schedule task.

But I am looking for something more handy, either via Vcenter or some script tools.

Kindly suggest if its possible in any way.
