I requested a similar feature a few months ago. Too bad my programming skills suck :(

Set it up at Tools -> Options -> AutoDJ / Now Playing

Turn it on at Play -> AutoDJ

However, iTunes Genius feature and MM's auto-DJ are quite different features. AutoDJ's main purpose is to keep tracks playing when the list of tracks that you selected runs out. By default MM will just add random tracks on to the end of the list. You can specify in the options to add tracks from only a certain playlist or filter, and there are also add-on scripts available that can more intelligently add tracks to auto-DJ. You may want to try Last.fm DJ (2nd script listed at that link) as its probably the closest to Genius available in MM (based on the fact that it compares the tracks you are playing to similar tracks at last.fm and adds them to the list).

Note that while iTunes genius is meant to build playlists, auto-DJ is not - it really is meant to keep tracks playing.

I tried iTunes 8.0 Genius playlist on my library and it does a terrific job of building a playlist.

That prompted me to explore MM's Auto-DJ. I need some help in using Auto-DJ, are there any instructions?
