    After I upgraded to Snow Leopard, when opening powerpoint files (PPT) in Keynote,
    the program will load 30% (in the progress bar) then Keynote will be non responsive and I will have to force quit the program.

    Never had any problems with Keynote before but I use it quite a bit for presentations so you can see the obvious issues here.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    My files are PPT not PPTX.

    I've had similar experiences as Sonny01. It's slow and locks up quite a bit.
    Even Pages froze when I tried to open a document that I had a saved/created earlier in the day.

    Did you upgrade or do a clean install?

    I did a clean install of SL, followed by a new install of Keynote, and it is fine.

    I was thinking about re-installing iLife but I'm not sure I have my serials. They're actually my friends and he let me use his license.

    I had the same problem with both Pages and Keynote. I couldn't see the images! I tried reinstalling iWork (by the way, not iLife) but still had the same problems. I snooped around the net and found these two updates:

    For Pages:

    For Keynote:

    I checked my versions of the two apps and and they were a bit behind. Apparently, these updates never made it to Software Update!

    After I installed them, everything worked fine. Good luck!
