I have a MacBook Pro that I would like to use while I'm at work, but am reluctant to actually take to work because the environment is quite dusty.
I have been provided with a IBM Thinkpad running Windows 7 at work and would like the remote control the MacBook Pro from work over an existing VPN tunnel. Ideally, the laptop would just be connected to the power and the lid would be closed to prevent any dust or anything building up on the screen.
Is there any offical or advisable ways to do this? I imaging something like VNC but the fact that the lid would be closed and I may want to disconnect the VNC connection and reconnect after the laptop will have gone to sleep could be an issue.
The MacBook Pro is running OS X Lion and has an SSD drive (if that makes any difference to sleep issues, etc.).
