w2K8 R2 filter security log for user logins

Hi
How can I filter Windows Server 2008 R2 security log to find the login activity of a specific user - will this filter also include logins that occur when the screensaver is unlocked ?

thanks

Thanks you Manjunath Sullad
I had already come across this blog page,
this doesn't actually answer the second part of my question
which is 'how to obtain the login or logout info for a specific user'
