My laptop is a member of other companies domain.  I need to use the admin pak though to modify some accounts on my work domain at work. Is there any way my laptop can use the admin pak to modify user accounts on a domain the laptop is not a member of ?

Yes, you should be able to do it...

Try this...

Right Click Active Directory Users and Computers and select Run AS (you might have to hold the shift when you right click), Enter your domain userid/password in the dialog.

Once opened right click the top of the tree where is says "Active Directory Users and Computers..."  then select "Connect to Domain"
Enter the Domain name of your domain.

hmmmm... not sure.  

Why not just leave your laptop the way it is and then remote into a DC on your domain with the RDP client and load ADUc from there.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You will not be able to run it unless the domain your laptop belongs to has a trust with the domain you are trying to manage.  

I suggest using RDP to access the DC directly.  

Your other option is to change the domain membership of your laptop to the one you are trying to manage then change it back when you leave.  Or you can setup a trust if these domains are physically connected (but not advisable if this is the only reason for it)

You should be able to run RDP from your laptop and just not use full screen mode.  You should also be able to cut/paste directly into a RDP session from information from your laptop.

If you don't want to run RDP your only options are to sit in front of 2 computers or change your laptop's domain membership.
