Can you be more specific in what you did and what Tooltip (note the 
lower case "t") you used?

I just created a new Slideshow, inserted one of the Documentation Center 
examples in the Input cell of the template Mathematica 6 gave me:

   Plot[Tooltip[{Sin[x], Cos[x]}], {x, 0, 10}]

When I change Format>Screen Environment to Slideshow, I have no 
difficulty seeing the tooltips on the two curves, even when the notebook 
is left at its default size, which is far from full-screen.
