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

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

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.
