You can use the command

NET SESSION

at the command prompt.  You could also view your security log in event viewer to view logon logoff activity.

great! thanks for the info, can you should clarify what the "open" and the "client type"s ection represents. Is it possible for a user to switch there pc off without logging off and the network still think that they are logged on?

event log is the best source for monitoring what you want to know. as for the 2nd question, yes, it is possible. according to the official information of microsoft, the duration may last 45 minutes.
