if you rename the original presentation (or make a copy and then
change the name of that), so that the filename extension is "pps"
rather than "ppt" you get what is called a PowerPoint show - which
autostarts when you open it and doesn't display any of the usual
PowerPoint stuff (on my Mac I get the PowerPoint splash screen, then
its straight into the presentation).
