There are other moves

  • Heal Bell/Aromatherapy, when used by a teammate, will awaken a Pokemon from sleep
  • Worry Seed, when used on a sleeping Pokemon, will give it the ability insomnia and cause it to awaken
  • Wake Up Slap will awaken a Pokemon from sleep
  • Skill Swap abilities with the sleeping Pokemon that prevent sleep, such as Vital Spirit, Insomnia, Hydration (in rain) and Leaf Gaurd (in Sun)

Of the four above, the first is the most practical, as it can also remove other status ailments for all team members and does not require great set up or the opponent's use of a move. There are other moves, such as Safeguard and Substitute, that while can not awaken a sleeping Pokemon can prevent said Pokemon from being put to sleep by another Pokemon

Hope this helps
