My two cents worth would rather be to focus on the actual Powerpoint data file that is the source of the problem, when attempted to being opened. If it has any corruption in it, or possibly a piece of malware made to disguise and represent itself as a Powerpoint presentation, then I would accept it crashing and forcing a reboot of the PC, especially if there is no malware protection in place, on a Windows system especially. Virus writers can easily embed bad and malicious code into documents, presentations and spreadsheets.

Try another known working presentation data file, and see if this also causes the crash with LO and the PC, if not, then you know where your source of your problem is.

There is not much stuff (if any) in LO that could cause a reboot of a
computer. Although it's not possible to completely rule out a LO issue, I'd
suggest you run some memory testing program (like memtest86+), as it's much
more likely that your issue is related to faulty memory/hardware.
