    You can set system preferences to turn on your Mac automatically at a certain time... or just don't turn it off, as it wont harm your system leaving it on.

    As for iTunes, there are probably 3rd party programs but you could probably set Automator up to help you with that problem.

    Its not exactly the same but go to:
    System Prefs/Energy Saver/Schedule (Tab).
    Now you set your computer to restart at a given time.

    Now go to:
    System Prefs/Accounts/ Startup Items (tab)
    Add itunes as an App that opens when your machine starts.
    Itunes will now open everytime your machine starts.

    If you're really tricky, you can select a preferred track to play instead of iTunes the App, once that tracks playing iTunes is now open anyway, so it will continue to play after the track is finsished.

    ...or just write a script
