    Thanks for your reply.
    That wasn't what I had in mind. What I had was the homegroup setup just to access documents folder on the desktop and vise versa.
    Many thanks.

    You operate your PC as an administrator? In that case it may help to define a user "laptop" and a password, and to set the sharing and security settings for this user.
