John, You can launch Powerpoint with a Sample presentation that has  
just one slide (maybe with the Church's Picture or other) then on that  
slide put a hyperlink that Says "End" (or some such) that will take  
them back to Revolution from within Powerpoint. It's not perfect but  
at least they won't have to do more than just click on the link.
