Is there any way to hibernate the raspberry pi and wake it up periodically without any physical contact but only controls through the GPIO pins?

  • Shut it down, yes. But how do you plan to wake it up by GPIO when it is off?

There NO way to hibernate the Raspberry Pi.

It is either running or not. You can poweroff which leaves the Graphics Core running, but you need to restart.
