Auto advance slide after custom animation.

I have created a slide show in which each slide has a custom exit animation, after which the screen stays blank and waits for a second mouse click to advance the slide. Is there a way I can tell Powerpoint to advance the slide after the exit animation has finished?

I have tried to create a mouse over object (99% transparancy) which enters as the last animation which has a mouse over action to hyperlink the next frame. This only seems to work when I move the mouse over the screen (which is as bad as having to do a second mouse click, and more unsightly).

Any ideas you wonderful people?

There is no "animate then auto-transition" option in PPT, so doing this is kind of a pain. It's also easier to do than to describe.

Basically, you need two slides. The first one just goes to the point just before where the slide goes blank. Then the mouse click takes you to the second slide, which has the last animation on it, and that last animation is set to automatic. (So it may need to be a copy of the first slide, plus the last animation.) It also has the "regular" contents of the 2nd slide.

So when you click the mouse on the first slide, you move to the 2nd slide and the last animation happens, then when you click the mouse again, the regular slide 2 contents happen.

Like I said, it's harder to explain than to do, but if you have a lot of slides like this, it will be a royal pain.
