    I doubt you'll get any help on this, but you could try searching the net.

    All of them will take that long on Mac with the airport card. Get a usb wifi adapter that supports packet injection. Then Kismac will do it in minutes.

    Could this be used for remote desktop? I had someone hack my MBP and take control of the mouse.

    No.. when "hacking WIFI(wireless penetration testing)" your only getting access to the Access point, Not someone's machine.

    you most likely have some spyware/malware /VNC software installed

    More likely just plain old screen sharing enabled and a weak password.
