Mathematica not simplifying Laplace transforms

Hi.
I'm just testing out Mathematica 5.2 and I'm having a few problems.

1) How do I get Mathematica to simplify

LaplaceTransform[Exp[t]*f[t], t, s]

I expect it to say something like

LaplaceTransform[f[t], t, -1 + s]

but it just repeats the input expression.

Basically, how do I get it to behave like on this page:
http://www.ma.iup.edu/projects/CalcDEMma/laplace/laplace1.html

2) This might be related, how do I define the domain of a variable?
Like making the variable "t" a positive real number.

Thanks.

Regards,
Roger
