I do have the auditing on but its over 200K entries under security. I tried filtering it using the domain\username but it wouldn't show anything.

One out-of-the-box way is to set the GPO "Display information about previous logons during user logon".
But, I think by default this isn't set.

Computer Configuration| Policies | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Windows Logon Options | Display information about previous logons during user logon = Enabled
