Powershell for detecting user sessions in Windows Server 2008

Heyas,

I would like to know if I can use powershell to detect if a session is currently running on a Windows Server 2008 and if their isn't to automatically launch one using a specified username/password. If anyone can point to some commands or examples that 'mimck' what I am looking for it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.
