Hot movies in powerpoint

Videos in powerpoint - I find that videos in powerpoint cause the computer to run hotter that the same videos in Windows Media Player. Confirmation bias or is it something else?

Black or white background for presentation slides

I'm speaking at a technical conference in about 2 weeks and my slides (in openoffice) are using black as its background color. But recently in a podcast, several people commented that for conferences, it is mandatory that slides use white for the background to enhance the legibility. On this previous question, the commented used white text on an almost black background. Should I reformat my slides to use a white background ?

Good help forum for Office 2010?

Can anyone recommend a good, well-trafficked forum for Microsoft Office (particularly 2010) questions? Seems like this should be eminently Googleable, but maybe because there are so many of them, I'm not finding the one that is the one. Thanks!

Does PowerPoint 2010 run lag-free?

PowerPoint 2010 is running slow on my system. It takes a long time to redraw thumbnails every time I go to slide sorter (up to 1/2 second per slide), lags a lot when moving objects on a page or when flipping from one page to the next. Seeing as I do PowerPoint for a living, this is not so good. Before I shell out for a new computer, I wanted to make sure this is my computer and not a problem with PowerPoint. So, my question: Do you find PowerPoint 2010 to be nice and snappy on your system? [more inside]

Please listen carefully, as our options have changed

My place of employment has a long and convoluted phone tree that our clients have to wade through when they call in. No one in the organization seems to have written everything down in one place, and I'm trying to create a...document?...that allows us to conceptualize which of our menu options lead where, and what they say at each point. What's the best/easiest way to do this and make it useful? [more inside]

The best presentation you ever saw.

I'm looking for examples of great presentations, including visuals (PowerPoint or otherwise).

Netbook and Powerpoint?

Can a netbook effectively run Powerpoint? If so, any recommendations? The primary use would be regular ol' netbook tasks (browsing the net, email). However, as an attorney, I also occasionally need a laptop to display Powerpoint slides via the courtroom's newfangled electronic display system (through the VGA port). Will a netbook be able to do this in a passably quick manner with an older version of Powerpoint / a similar program? With added RAM? Please justify my purchase of a $350 toy.

Could somebody help me with my powerpoint project?

I need to do a powerpoint about gun trafficking in Colombia. First of all, how do I get the powerpoint to go to the next slide automatically after a certain period of time after one slide is shown, and how do I incorporate music into the slide show? Secondly, can anybody point me to any useful charts/graphs/pictures on the web? I found this online pdf U.N. report that was really helpful but unfortunately I couldn't save or copy and paste any of the graphs as they were part of the text. Help is greatly needed and appreciated.
