I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use the command


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.
