If I understand correctly, you've created an account/profile for the laptop. If this is true, then follow the steps below..

1. Start Outlook (using Laptop profile)
2. Choose TOOLS, OPTIONS, CALENDAR OPTIONS
3. Choose RESOURCE SCHEDULING
4. Check "Automatically decline conflicting meeting requests"
5. Choose OK


That should do it .....

wjc3:  The Answer you have provided only works for user calendars, NOT Public folders.

redrov: ask for your points back

You can set up a user account as a meeting room, then log on as the room and then provide appropriate permissions to other users, and then follow wjc's directions to make the calendar auto update.  All my meeting rooms and conference equipment are set up this way, and it works pretty well.  However this does not work for public folders since there is not a user account.

I have been searching for a solution to force "Public Folder" Calendars to auto accept and decline.  If you find an answer please let me know.
