It's definitely possible. I think I probably speak for most users when I say that I won't just do it for you but I'm willing to help if you give it a shot.

Start by doing some research on how IR-Led's control your TV. You will need to read the Signal from the remote. then when the power button is pressed let the arduino do it's thing !
