Is there a way, using Dell Kace, to force computers to wake up (or boot up) and check-in? I'm noticing a lot of our inventory has not checked in for a while (anywhere from a few days to a few months). It's not uncommon for some computers to be offline for a while when not in use. However, it throws off our inventory and reporting when machines aren't checking in regularly. 

Your help is appreciated.

Depending on the BIOS settings you may be able to accomplish this using a scheduled wake on LAN packet. You can find those settings in the Distribution, Wake-on-LAN page of the appliance. Your machines will need to be configured to respond to the WOL packet, of course.

Share SNMP OID and MIB Information
It’s easy to add custom SNMP OID GETs to your Dell KACE K1000 inventory, but where do you find the exact OIDs you need for a specific device? This is the place to share the OIDs and MIBs you have – and to request the ones you need.
