Wow, your dad seems to have issues. Laptops are generally not that loud. But yeah, you can plug it all into a mixer and use the headphone out.

can you plug the guitar directly into the laptop? that way the amp wouldn't be making noise at all, and you could plug the headphones directly in to the laptop too...

Also, if you want to spend the money to buy a new amp, the amp I have has a headphone jack, and when I plug headphones in, the actual amp doesn't make any noise at all, I think buying plugs to plug your guitar into the computer would be a whole lot cheaper though.

What amp? With some amps, you can put a 3.5mm jack into them and play your audio from a PC, ipod etc that way. That would solve your problem.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

This.

You could even go from the headphone output on your amp (so you can use your amp settings) directly into your laptop. Either way though, you'll probably need a 1/4" male to 1/8" male cable.

Mines a Peavy (not sure about what kind of Peavy, but thats the brand) and I can plug pretty much any headphones I want directly into the amp

If I wanna play late at night and don't feel like pissing the neighbours off I play my guitar through the amp with a pair of headphones on and then any backing music I want I play through my laptop with earphones underneath the headphones from the amp. Works a treat.
