    Unless you have set a timer (in Wi-Fi advance settings) to turn on data/Wi-Fi at a particular time each day, or you have an app set up to turn on Wi-Fi when the screen comes on (or similar) , I think your only option is a factory reset. I don't think mobile data can be enable remotely in lollipop at all.

    I assume you mean the forgotten backup password is for a fingerprint lock? I think you should normally get an option to use your Google account password instead after a number of failure attempts - but of course this needs an internet connection...
