I currently have 2 machines networked, at the moment I have 2 monitors which is taking up too much of my space.

I would like to be able to use my main machine to control the second machine every now and again, something similar to Remote Desktop that gives absolute control of machine 2, allowing me to see the desktop, move files about, close the machine down etc.

Then I can regain my precious workspace.

You can achieve something like this using a KVM switch (Keyboard, Video, Mouse). This allows you to control 2 computers from one set of input/ display devices.

Cheers, do you know if it is possible to copy and paste from one to the other, using the KVM switch.

Just found out it is not possible to copy and paste.

RealVNC does what you are looking for. I use it all the time to control all my computers in the house.
