I want to leave the desktop locked while using VNC to connect to a remote Windows machine.

Normally I believe when you VNC and unlock the desktop the physical server's desktop is also unlocked. I don't want that.

Anyway to prevent it?

RealVNC can do that. I haven't checked other VNC distributions.

From VNC Server Free Edition 4.1 for Windows :

Disable local inputs while server is in use

DisableLocalInputs=true/false

The mouse and keyboard physically attached to the server computer can be disabled for the duration of a remote connection, preventing local users from interacting with the computer.
