    Here's the deal I have a dual setup with my macbooks. I have a 13'alum and 13'black macbook. When I am not home I allow my roommate to use my black mackbook because it is the one i leave locked at home. I suspect he is stealing out of my room but can not prove it. I have checked other threads but they all require a program to be actively running, which would defeat my purpose because he can just close the big photobooth app that is open. I have tried using screen recycler and jollyfastvnc to keep both screens active on the computer left at home but after a while it gets disconnected and only one active screen remains leaving photobooth open. I do use ARD which allows me to observe both screens remotely and I have Dyndns to keep the ip address updated. there are a couple roommates and this has happened twice already so i did research but can not find a solution. what i am looking for is if there is something i could use that lets me see through my isight without using an app remotely? is this even possible? it's just everyone has a mac in the house and knows i use ARD on my two computers. If anyone knows of something that will allow me to remotely see through my macbook's isight without opening up an app would be great.

    Have you tried doing something like that on a background user, or does it disconnect when you switch users?
