I'd like to set up a laptop to show several powerpoint presenations one
after the other without my having to stop one and load the next. They have
different backgrounds and master pages, etc, so I can't just takes the
slides from the other presenations and put them at the end of the first one.

Is there a way to do this?

Found the answer finally at CNET:

To combine two presentations into one (and hence more than two) in
PowerPoint 2007 follow this:

1. open the ppt that you want as your starting ppt
2. click below (in open area) the last slide in the left-hand-side thumbnail
view of slides
3. click on the arrow on New Slide button under Home Menu
4. select the option of Reuse Slides
5. on the right-hand-side the Reuse Slides toolbar will open
6. Click on browse and select Browse File
7. browse your 2nd ppt, it will open all the thumbnails from your 2nd ppt
8. now you have two option either click each slide, this will only insert
that slide. Or Right Click and select Insert All Slides option.
NOTE: Remember to Check the checkbox on bottom of Reuse Slides toolbar to
keep the original style and formatting.

Might be easier than you think. You can copy/paste slides from sorter view of
one presentation to sorter view of the other OR use the insert slides from
file command (you don't mention which version of PPT you have, so I cant' tell
you how to find it).

In both cases, there's an option to preserve source formatting. Do that and
it'll keep the formatting from the original presentation.

The problem with the solution to embed the set of slides from one presentation into another is that I have 10 presentations, and they are all quite large. All together, it would be over 30 MB. That is too large. I'd like to keep them all separate and just play one after the other without merging. Any ideas?
