There are command line options to see who is logged into a computer.  See this page for many useful commands.

Another example here:

You can also log people off remotely if you need to.

Do you want it do it manually or by an application.

Well... if the person has not logged off, he is still logged on and his name can be found. But how to tell a computer that is abandoned and unlocked from one that is in use?
You should deploy auto-locking after a certain amount of time instead.

Hi,

  Finally  I resolved my issue by forwarding events to servers and then export those events to CSV format.
