The event viewer stores the logon events, so you should be able to get that information from there - and 'PsLogList' (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897544.aspx) should help.

Open Event Viewer by typing EVENTVWR.MSC in the search dialog box at the bottom of the Start Menu and hitting Ctrl, Shift and Enter keys.  Open up Windows Logs in the left pane, click on Security under that.  Logon events have event ID 4624, logoff have ID 4634.
