Face recognition software needs a camera in order to work. Not sure what the purpose behind this is.

If you want a secure way of unlocking your computer by "something you have", this can be achieved by a Smart Card or a USB dongle.

In terms of the above:

So here is the exact requirement.

We are running a E-Learning platform where we face a problem of impersonation.
We want the user that is sitting on the computer should be authenticated based on face recognition software and incase he goes away for XX seconds or minutes then a alert shall come up.
We want the face recognition shall happen from a existing data base of images rather any software building the image on the spot with the user.

Please suggest some face recognition attendance system per PC based.

In terms of using a pre existing database of images it depends entirely on how the facial recognition software stores its data. Also 99% of the software out there needs more than one image for it to be able to make a successful match. This is due to changing lighting conditions, etc making it harder to match to only one image.

In terms of Software you can try:

If these users are all going to be on their own pcs you would need to look at an API based approach:

I believe what your asking for is basically the way facial recognition works these days used with a web cam, outside of a web cam facial recognition of just images is called image tagging.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facial_recognition_system
A facial recognition system is a computer application for automatically identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source. One of the ways to do this is by comparing selected facial features from the image and a facial database.

What your asking for
(a) We want the user that is sitting on the computer should be authenticated based on face recognition software<< no probs but use web cam once that face is logged it uses an inbuilt image.
(B) and incase he goes away for XX seconds or minutes then a alert shall come up.<< nope
it can be set to go into stand by though or the system logs off
(C) We want the face recognition shall happen from a existing data base of images rather any software building the image on the spot with the user.<<  I believe this is how it works now

Step 6
Log in to your computer using facial recognition by click "Face Recognition" at the log in screen. The Toshiba webcam will turn on to verify that your face matches the picture and log you in to your laptop.
