Unless you made a mistake in the formula you posted, the answer
depends on the sign of s - 1 - Î»/Î¼. Mathematica can deal with all
three possible cases (it is also pretty obvious when done by hand):
(Limit[(1 - E^((-Î¼)*t*
(s - 1 - Î»/Î¼)))/
(s - 1 - Î»/Î¼),
t -> Infinity,
Assumptions ->
{Î¼ > 0 && #1[s,
1 + Î»/Î¼]}] & ) /@
{Greater, Equal, Less}
{-(Î¼/(Î» - s*Î¼ + Î¼)),
0, Infinity}
