I wish I could help you because I am having similiar challenges. Slightly more complicated as I do not have any audio in the slide just want it to do a user advance just like PPT but in a published Presenter format. Keep me posted on what you discover! Please don't blow your brains out! Not worth it!
I finally cleared the sync problem by manually copying and pasting the >contents< of each slide into a new powerpoint document (ie not simply copying the slide set), reloading the audio and resyncing. I guess a bug had crept into the original document which disturbed the flash generation module of Presenter. Irritating but solvable.
If my solution above doesn't work, it could be you've got your animations set for automatic instead of "on mouse click" in powerpoint. Also check your slide properties in Presenter. They can be set for user advance or automatic (after audio has finished playing). Have you put an "advance slide" button on your slides? This is programmed using the Action Button property in Powerpoint.
Hope this helps a bit. Otherwise post again with more details of your problem.
thanks Robert, will try your suggestions. I do think you are right about the bug or something...seems to have something to do with the number of times a slide gets copied or altered, I erased all of the ppt annimations then redid them, then did the sync in presenter, this seemed to work, but I still feel like I am going about things through the "back door" if you know what I mean? Is there a correct way to do this?
If there is a neater way of doing it, I haven't discovered it. I'm new to Presenter anyway.
Quick question for you....when you wrote:

Are you finding that you can use action buttons in powerpoint even after publishing to Breeze content? I'm working with PowerPoint 2003 and if I publish, action buttons cease to work. I know that in my version of the Breeze plugin (build .247) active X controls (or maybe its VBscript functions?) that are applied to action buttons are completely stripped of their functionality...the net result is just an image of the action button and it won't work. So...are you able to use action buttons in your presentations? If so, what version of Breeze/Presenter are you using because I've got a couple of slides that could use that functionality!
Can't really help here as I'm using Presenter, not Breeze. I know the products are basically the same but don't know functionally how they might differ.
