    Use iRed Lite. It works great for PowerPoint and anything else you might want to control with the Apple Remote.

    It is NOT just you. I've had a Macbook for almost a month now and every time I save a Powerpoint file -- even when it autosaves -- takes about 45-60 seconds. I thought it might be a corrupt file or something, so I deleted the pre-installed version & re-installed the version that runs normally on my G4. Though it runs well on the G4, it is still intolerably slow on the Macbook. Tried to work it out with AppleCare & had no luck. The tech said that they may need to update the software for compatibility with the new intel chips. Be on the lookout for new versions or patches . . . .

    Just a note -

    Running non-universal apps (especially Office apps) through Rosetta requires a good chunk of RAM. I would bet you would have a much better experience with a RAM upgrade.

    Not sure what the original poster's problem is, however. :O

    Is there any way that you can post the directions on how to set up iRedLight to work with PowerPoint? Or better yet is there a file you can post somewhere or that I can find somehwere? I downloaded iRedLight and can see where they reference how to set up PowerPoint in their documentation, but I can't seem to figure out how to program it.

    Thanks

    Could someone steer me to a fix. I have a Macbook Pro, 1.5GB, 2GH machine that until today was working perfectly. I attempted to open a Powepoint document emailed to me and I get "The Application Powerpoint quit unexpectedly". None of my other MS Office 2004 apps have this problem and if I use a "guest" user login, PowerPoint starts and seems to work just fine. So it would appear that something within my account is bad. I have done the reinstall, disk verify, and permissions thing, but it still fails. I get the small logo window with my owner name and the product code and immediately following that I get the quit window with a choice to notify Apple or restart or quit. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks beforehand....
