I need to know how to setup logging for specifically VPN Peers on a Cisco ASA 5505. I would like to see who and when people disconnect.

You can pick this right out of the normal syslog severity 5 messages #722033

i.e.  "Group <tunnel name> User <username> IP <source ip> First TCP SVC connection established for SVC session.

Is there a way to adjust the logging to just capture these instances from here on out though? Also we have VOIP phones that connect as VPN Peers and seem to be timing out. Is there a way to adjust this to unlimited or just make it more stable?

Well, you can filter out syslog messages to just capture what you want at the server side.    You can also specify custom logging in the ASA for VPN informational, and leave everything else at a lower logging level....  

What I do usually is setup a syslogging tool that does log analysis.   There are a few good ones out there, like sawmill.  They can crunch through the syslog output and generate some decent reports like this....
