If you can access that machine you can go into the security event logs in the machine and check for login events.  You can also check DNS to see if  you can find a hostname for that box (may give you a hint depending on your naming convention)

Thanks

You can use computer management to check for who is logged onto the computer and what files the user has opened. Let me know if u need the steps to access computer management.
