Hi,
you could assume that (s-1-Lambda/Mu)>0:

In:= \!\(Assuming[\[Mu] > 0\  && \ \((s - 1 - \[Lambda]/\[Mu])\) > 0,
Limit[\(1 - \[ExponentialE]\^\(\(-\[Mu]\)\ t\ \((s - 1 - \
\[Lambda]\/\[Mu])\)\)\)\/\(s - 1 - \[Lambda]\/\[Mu]\),
t \[Rule] \[Infinity]]]\)

Out= \!\(\(-\(\[Mu]\/\(\[Lambda] + \[Mu] - s\ \[Mu]\)\)\)\)

HTH,
