I recently saw a powerpoint presentation where the speaker used a laptop connected to a projector. The slides were shown on the large screen as normal but there were speaker notes on the laptop screen (these were not visible to the audience on the big screen). He was using a Mac computer. Is it possible to use this feature within powerpoint for windows XP.

Yes, you can use this Power Point feature in XP. http://www.ehow.com/how_12129_add-speaker-notes.html Go to the "view" menu and select "Notes Page". This will allow you to type the notes below the slide that you are currently on. These notes will not be shown in the slide show. The second thing to do is make sure that your slide show displays on your secondary monitor (being the projector). Go to the "Slide Show" menu and select "Set Up Show". Toward the right side of that window you will need to set the "Display slide show on:" to your second monitor, as apposed to your primary monitor. Now when you run the slide show you will see the slide in full screen on the secondary monitor and the slide and notes will show up on the primary monitor within the powerpoint screen. The notes display at the bottom of the window. You can make the box that they show up in larger or smaller depending how many notes you have to display. Let me know if this works for you. I am using Office 2003. Thanks!
