Best Way to Create Power Up Pulse Generator to Wake Up MCU

I was wondering what some of the common ways is to create a power up pulse to wake up a MCU in stop mode? Most of the voltage supervisor and monitors assert a reset anytime the VCC/monitor voltage of the supervisor falls. This has the effect of waking the MCU up but not letting the program run which increases the current draw from a battery backup.
