This is how you would list available VMs, get their state, then power them on/off via command line / shell.
# List the inventory ID of the virtual machine with the command:
vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms |grep <vm name>

# Check the power state of the virtual machine with the command:
vim-cmd vmsvc/power.getstate <vmid>

# Power-on the virtual machine with the command:
vim-cmd vmsvc/power.on <vmid>
