Windows 7: USB KVM Information

USB KVM Information

I have a home PC and a work laptop, the latter I take home to work from home. I would like to be able to use my home screen, keyboard and mouse with the laptop, and I know that a KVM should allow me to do this. However, I would like to make it simple, and deal with as few connections to the laptop as I can.

Is there a KVM on the market that will allow me to run keyboard, mouse AND SCREEN off a USB connection to the laptop, or will I need both USB and Video connection to the laptop every time I want to connect?

I suspect that I will not be able to run video off a USB connection, but is is worth asking.

If it is possible, any suggestions as to kit I may buy would be useful.

My suggestion would be the use of a remote mouse and keyboard and the use of a dongle which will take one USB port and a direct connection if you have one from video to screen.
