VBA - PowerPoint Refresh after 15 minutes...

Hi,
I got this powerpoint presentation that as about 16 pages.
If in the middle of the presentation i stop touching it for 15 minutes, it refreshes automaticly and it restarts all over. How can i set a longer timer for this. It is really important for me so any answer would be great.

Thank you !!!
Paolo

Paolo,

It sounds like you have your presentation set to 'kiosk' mode.

In kiosk mode, the presentation will automatically restart after x minutes.

Unfortunately you cannot change the 'x' to how long you want it to be.

The alternative is to change from "kiosk" mode to "presented by a speaker"

open you presentation - slideshow menu > set up slideshow > tick "presented by a speaker"

Another workaroud I've never tried is to add an invisible object to your slide. Either off the page, or no fill or outline color. Then set the custom animation to appear after x minutes. This may stop the auto restart feature of kiosk mode.
