Yes, normally in the c:\windows\temp directory.  

To turn AutoRecover on, follow these steps:

   1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
   2. In the Options dialog box, click to select the Save AutoRecover info every check box on the Save tab, set the interval to the number of minutes that you want, and then click OK.

Hope that helps.

Assuming it's the same as 2003 (I dont have 2002) and I think it is. This is on by default but can be adjusted . turned off in Tools > Options > save Tab.

The temp file is ONLY retained if the program crashes in normal closes it is wiped. PowerPoint will usually tell you if it has saved backups when you next open, iof you don't see this they are probably gone.
The files are named PPT(number).tmp so a search for PPT*.tmp should find any, rename to something .ppt and see if it works.
