Need to find a way to activate a Power Point show via a motion activated sensor.

You know the motion activated video displays that you might pass in Home Depot or Lowes? You know, when you pass by them, the video starts or restarts? Yeah, that.
What I need is something very similar. I'd like to do one of two things with a large LCD screen and a computer that is located at the front door of our showroom. I'd like to start a Power Point or movie file when someone comes in the front door and activates the motion sensor. Ideally, the situation would go down like this: I have a Power Point running at all times in our front showroom. When the motion sensor kicks in, I'd like the computer to start another Power Point show or play a video file at that time. After that show or video file has ended, the previous Power Point show would continue.
Does that seem possible? If so, how do I make that happen?
