Plugin not activating correcting

I am using WP Symposium. I want all the settings, pages, posts, plugins, widget placements etc to be based on a model site. It is working but when I get click the setting feature the WP Symposium plugin does not activate correctly. When I leave the settings off it does. Is there a way to schedule the plugins or something else to do to get the plugins to load last so that they load correctly or vice versa?
