Hi, i'm new

I just wanted to asking something about using a free remote desktop/ screen sharing application

Basically, is it possible to use a remote desktop program, i.e. teamviewer, to view and control a computers user account whilst they are not logged in.

E.g. i am on my mac laptop upstairs and want to access my main account on the downstairs but somebody is on it. Is it possible to control the screen of my user whilst they are logged in to theirs?

Thanks in advance.

(p.s: as this is my first thread, i'm not really sure if this is the right place to post, if it is not then please re-direct me to where it should be and i will delete/re-post)
QUOTE Thanks

thanks, thats really good but it doesn't really do what i wanted, when i log switch user on the main computer it also switches user on the laptop. I understand i probably can't actually do what i want, thanks for the help though!
