Suspend Software Center activities when in PowerPoint presentation mode
Currently, there exists a setting in Software Center to "suspend Software Center activities when my computer is in presentation mode." Users don't have any idea what Windows Presentation Mode is. Ideally, the setting would stop Software Center activities when PowerPoint is running a presentation. That is often when you'd want to stop Software Center from installing something anyway.

I agree with the previous comment, it's not just PowerPoint. We use Skype and are frequrently hosting meetings and not in PowerPoint's presenter mode so "In a meeting" detection would be a great feature.

Maybe this could be in addition to presentation mode, but those of us that do know use presentation mode beyond just when using PowerPoint. We use it when doing webex, gotomeeting, Skype meetings, etc. where you are sharing you desktop with others. These do not always have PowerPoint involved, but all the same I do not want to have software center as well as Outlook notifications and other windows notifications popping up all over. Presentation mode stops that from happening.
While having it automatically suspend these things during powerpoint presentation for convenience is nice, it should not take away from how it should be used by those that are informed. Hopefully they can do both.
