Here are two reasons this won't quite work:
1) How can the system know how much time has passed while it was off?
Real time clocks in PCs are notoriously unreliable and having a system come
back up with an IP address it had ages ago could be disastrous.
2) How can the system know it's on the same network it was on before?
If you want to use DHCP, you have to understand that if DHCP is down,
DHCP clients may be down too. If you google for "DHCP" and "reliability" you
will find lots of details.
