I have Calendars created for each department in Exchange Public Folders.  Users can invite these calendars for various meetings or to inform Department heads that they will be out of the office, etc.

I know in an individuals calendar you can set "AutoAccept/Decline Meeting Requests" etc.  I need this same ability for the "Public Folders Calendars" in order to prevent double booking, etc.

How can this be set?

Visit this site. There is a server side script that can be applied to the public folder calendar to allow it to automatically accept and book meeting requests. It will also decline conflicts and even send an e-mail with the name of the person who has it booked. We used this feature for conference rooms and it was quite helpful.

Go to this site
http://www.slipstick.com/calendar/skedresource.htm

You will find the Auto Accept Script and a multitude of other ideas including CDO and ASP ideas for public folders.

Good Luck

I did use a server side script to accomplish this but the resource I used was exchangecode.com by Robert Strong.  He also provides a AutoAccept wizard that will automatically configure the script according to your specifications
