Do you have any example of xbee sleep?
You could have the Arduino use the watchdog timer to wake up periodically, power up the XBee, if it's time. The problem with this approach, of course, if that all the Arduinos need to wake up their XBees during the same window, which means that each Arduino needs an RTC and the RTCs all need to be in sync.
