Remote access / replicating screens

Specs: Windows XP
I've just found out that I'm not able to do this in the way in which I had hoped, with Remote Desktop Connection.

I have a laptop and I need to connect to a PC elsewhere in the office (on the network) that is linked to a huge TV screen on the wall. I need to update Powerpoint presentations that it plays 24/7, a few times each day, so doing it remotely is best as I don't have easy access to the PC and it's quite far away.

The computer/TV screen with the Powerpoint files on it is just a functional account, thats basically all it has on it. I can remote access the computer from my laptop with the functional account details and see tits desktop/whichever file it is running...However when I do this, the computer/TV screen shows as logged out so I'm not getting a mirror image.

What I need to do is access that screen/account from my laptop and see my mouse moving around the TV screen and edit files, before letting them play on screen. I then need to disconnect and it all stays on the screen. I don't know why's it's locking, please help
