Loged in user history log?

Hi,

Im looking for a possibility to see which user were logged on to the system and when,
including also Remote Desktop Protocol sessions.

There any way to look that up?
Maybe hided in Windows Event logs (I didn't find that)?

There is a PowerShell script on doing precisely this.

I didn't flag it,but rather just took mental note of it. If I run across the script, I'll post it for you.

Almost recall the sript as being a one-liner, but I cerntainly won't place any money on my memory.

Now here's one, but not the one I was hoping to find.

I'm coming up empty, so I'm going to give you links to some PowerShell forums. PowerSherll is The scripting language for admins.
