    Similar things have happened to me before. The following are obvious, but useful:

    Rule 1 of presenting with technology is "get your hands on the equipment early, check it all works, and then stash it under your desk".

    Rule 2 is "make sure the presentation room has a screen, enough power outlets in the right place, working LAN points, etc".

    Rule 3 is "find out what buttons you need to press to make the projector show what the laptop shows and go in and out of standby - and write them down somewhere".

    Something else will probably go wrong, but at least some of the bases are covered.
