Background: I'm currently have the server running on my MacBook Pro
and can VNC in remotely from a PC.  When I do this I effectively log
is as the user who is physically using my Macbook such that people can
see me working on the Macbook.

QUESTION:  Is there a way to VNC onto my MacBook such that when I am
using it remotely, the local physical screen of my MacBook does not
show my actions?  i.e. either it remains in screen saver mode or
something like this...  I guess I would still like to be logged into
the Macbook as "myself" so to speak remotely...
