Powerpoint 2011 for Mac: Possible to automate only a portion of slides?

I created a 60-slide presentation. There is a 15-minute period in which I need the slides to autorun, changing every 15 seconds. I finally figured out how to set the timings and transitions, but now when I try to play the presentation, it starts at the slides that have the timings on them rather than from the title slide. This happens even when I click on the title slide and choose to play the slideshow from the current slide.

I can’t figure out how to get my presentation to play from the start, with the slides manually advancing up to a specific slide, then having the timed slides autorun, and then going back to manual advancing when the auto run slides have been passed.

I’m on Mac with the latest OS and PowerPoint 2011.

I need to turn in this presentation for review later today. Any help in resolving this situation (or finding out that it’s impossible to do what I want to do) will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
