Are you running VNC as a service?
If you're running the VNC server as an application under Windows
NT/2000/XP then it can only provide remote access to the display if a user
is logged in and the workstation is not locked. In order to allow the
Ctrl-Alt-Del keypress to work and be accessed even if no user is logged in
or it is locked, you must run the VNC server as a system service.
