I want to control my laptop from my desktop.

I've been doing this with VNC (PC desktop to MacBook Pro) - but I want to remove the 'viewing' aspect of it on my desktop; I don't want to have the viewing screen on the desktop but still be able to control the mouse/keyboard via VNC.

Is this possible?

I'm using RealVNC Viewer and connecting to the default built-in VNC server on Mac OS X Lion.

Instead of VNC, consider using synergy. A great tool for controlling multiple machines from a single keyboard/mouse. Cross platform Windows / OSX / Linux.
