Using my laptop with my PC mouse, keyboard, and speakers?

Hi guys, I'm looking for some ways to use my old laptop as a extra screen. Is it possible to have full keyboard, mouse control from my main PC? Also could sound from my laptop output to my main PC? Reason I'm using it this way is to run some old end android idle games in the background which would not draw any resource from my PC. I'm not looking for a screen extender in anyway, the laptop can run it's own programs. I just don't want 2 sets of mouse, keyboard, and speakers. I am currently looking at synergy for the mouse and keyboard control, although I'm not too sure about sound. I have looked at a few remote desktops but I feel those aren't for long term and it draws unnecessary resources from both PC and laptop. So I am wondering if someone has done anything like this before and see how your experiences go. Thanks for the help.
