Hello,
we are using MS Sharepoint 2013 on a MS Server 2012 Std.

Is there a way to check if somebody is logged on and using SharePoint / IIS?

So in urgent situations, when we have to restart the server it is good to know
if somebody is working with SharePoint befor we kick him due a server reboot.

There is actually built in functionality within Windows Performance Monitor. The issue is that it shows connections not "logged in users" because of the way sharepoint works as a web-service it doesn't hold users logged in like at a PC. It logs in, gets the data, then runs it locally until you hit save at which point it reauthorizes and pushes back to the server. There is no constant connection because of the way that the web protocols work.

This is the closest I have found.

1.       Log to your SharePoint Front End Server
2.       Click “Start”
3.       Click “Run”
4.       Type “perfmon”
5.       In “Performance Monitor” window, click “Performance Monitor”
6.       In chart window, right click, click “Add Counters…”
7.       In “Add Counters” window, under “Available counters”, click “+” icon next to
         "Web Service"
8.       Click “Current Connections”
9.       Under “Instances of selected object”, choose “Total” or the web application
         your want to check
10.     Click “Add >>” button
11.     Click “OK”
12.     Graph will show users connected to your server
