the remote doesn't work natively with powerpoint as far as i know.

it works great with 'keynote' however. keynote is also a much more useful program.

albeit useful, it doesnt solve the problem i never thought to use my laptop as a presentation machine. i usually use the computer in the classroom as it always has PPT on it.

im assuming they have a projector hooked into a desktop in the room, as most schools do. Stop trying to be cool, and just do it the easy way, use theirs

Or if you have a newish Sony Ericsson mobile phone, then switch on the bluetooth and run the Presentation HID thats built in.
