Disable second monitor

Hi
I am using remote desktop from my laptop to desktop, My desktop has one monitor and one TV attached.

My problem is when i connect through my laptop to my desktop, if something is playing in TV from my desktop it will disappear, is there any solution when i connect through my laptop it will not stop TV and also sound will be left on desktop speakers.

Thanks for any help.

Login with RDP, without bumping current session.

Thanks sir for help, i cant work like this, was wondering if there is a normal solution like i am using MSN and other programs on my desktop. and now with above solution it login to me with same user on laptop but i have to run programs separately on each computer, for example if am running notepad++ on desktop it is not showing on my laptop with current session, would that be possible somehow to share same screen and programms while TV running as above?

Thanks

Edit: some features are also not available in above solution, like i cant see other drives except C drive. thx for any help
