Yes. there is anonther way to do that. you must create a vapp for each of your lab . and club those machine in those vapp. the vapp will work like your  vm and starting/stopping vapp will start and stop the vms residing on that vapp in same time. this will be more easy for you.

Its possible by a tricky method. you must scheduled Task to Change the VM power state on specific times, or when  you boot a windows lab vm it will execute other vm in same folder to boot and others to stop.

Hope you got it.
