I run a windows server and utilize gamestream quite regularly (with shields I have no reason to utilize moonlight over gamestream, but experience should be identical)
I always leave it unlocked. I never have any of my personal computers locked including the server. I let all the clients sleep through power settings. I leave the server always on, display always on
After all the initial nvidia resolution setup, steam, origin, etc - I can gamestream with the monitor unplugged. I don't have a dedicated monitor for the server, so there have been times where I replaced the OS drive or messed around with uefi where I had to move a monitor upstairs to fiddle with things. I regularly remote control it with ChromeRDP. I also have the integrated graphics enabled with the "virtual monitor" hack so that I can run quicksync in handbrake
