It sounds like your system isn't powering up the graphics card at all, when
it comes out of standby via WOL, until it sees an input event. I've seen
this problem once before on a test system of ours (which actually failed to
active the graphics card even if you moved the mouse or pressed a key) and
found that enabling Power-On Self Test when activated by Wake-On-LAN/coming
out of standby mode fixed it.
It may be, however, that we need to explicitely have VNC Server tell Windows
to power up the graphics card and monitor when a connection arrives in order
to have this work.
