I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In order to get this information you need to configure Active Direcotry auditing. I have created a HowTo which outlines how to accomplish this.

Enable Active Directory Auditing
http://www.wsit.ca/how-tos/active-directory/configure-active-directory-auditing/

Also you will need to increase your Logs on the DC to something substantial so that you can collect the logs and move them to another server.

I would recommend using Active Directory Auditing by Lepide Software to accomplish this and also provide a great Web Interface which will provide tons of reporting features also related to login/logoff times.
