you may have to reconfig your display settings so that your desktop is shown in clone mode over 2 monitors, you have to understand that your running one program over 2 monitors, if you have a PPT open on the 2ndary screen as a secondary instance then no probs, but as its only one instance spanned not possible.
try opening 2 instances of this PPT,
alternative idea is Virtual desktop

Well, you could make it so the power point program isn't maximized, then resize and move the window so it only fills the screen on one monitor.

It sounds like you're spanning instead of using true multiple monitors.

PowerPoint won't allow 2 instances of the application, but there are some options:
Working with two monitors; editing PowerPoint on dual monitors
