I haven't tested this:

Open a CMD prompt

powershell

import-module Active Directory

Get-ADUser -identity user1 -Properties "LastLogonDate" | Export-Csv .\output.csv

Open in new window

You will need to query the Security Event Log on the computer in question, not AD.

Something like this script will probably do the trick:

No it doesn't, but with the power of Excel it's quite easy to put a filter on and get the info you need.

The output display's like this:
Type: Logoff                 Date:  01/12/2014 19:49:34      Status: Success User:  UserA
Type: Local Logon       Date:  01/12/2014 19:44:52      Status: Success User:  DWM-1
Type: Local Logon       Date:  01/12/2014 19:44:52      Status: Success User:  DWM-1

Excel > Copy the output into the cell and use Text to Columns with a fixed column width or maybe tab.

Or, you can do a bit of research on the event logs in the security log yourself and tweak this one liner to see if it returns the output:

Get-EventLog Security |? Message -match "domain\user" |? {$_.Eventid -eq "4625" -or $_.Eventid -eq "4647
"}
