    JE This is directly out of the Microsoft Help file.

    Note at the bottom it speaks to continuous playing of music.

    To Add, music, songs, or sound effects

    Display the slide to which you want to add music or sound effects.

    On the Insert menu, point to Movies and Sounds, and then do one of the following:

    Insert a sound file

    Click Sound from File, locate the folder that contains the file that you want, and then double-click the file.

    Insert a sound clip from Clip Organizer

    Click Sound from Clip Organizer, scroll to find the clip that you want, and then click it to add it to the slide.

    Note To search for clips in the Clip Organizer, fill in the Search for box, and then click Go. To get more information about finding the clip that you want, including details about finding files by using wildcard characters and about adding your own clips to the Clip Organizer, click Tips for finding clips at the bottom of the task pane.

    Double-click the sound file that you want to insert.

    When a message is displayed, do one of the following:

    To play the music or sound automatically when you go to the slide, click Automatically.

    To play the music or sound only when you click the sound icon , click When Clicked.

    To adjust the settings for when the sound file stops, click the sound icon , right-click, and then click Custom Animation.

    In the Custom Animation task pane, click the arrow on the selected item in the Custom Animation list, and then click Effect Options.

    On the Effect tab, under Stop playing, do one of the following:

    To stop the sound file on mouse-click of this slide, select On click (the default).

    To stop the sound file after this slide, select After current slide.

    To keep the sound file playing for several slides, select After, and then set the total number of slides the file should play on.

    Hope this helps.

    when you insert the sound power point inserts a sound object right click on this and click edit sound object if you put a tick in top box marked loop until stopped, then when the music has finished it will restart, you can also hide the sound object from there as well
