To continue this topic, I'm faced with the same thing....

The problem is that with all these event id's 672, 673, 540...etc there is still no positive way to say , when a user 
logged on (via cntrl,alt delete) and logged off, as in shutdown or log off.

The type of logon/logoff is listed under the "Logon Type" field in the
Event ID record.  See the below URL for details and explanations:


Sounds like you want to audit the successful login/logoff events that
have a logon type of 2.

My goal, is to use syslog or some other form of monitoring to keep records of each employees logon/logoff of a PC 
physically on the network. I've been knee deep into all these event id's and nothing is accurate.

Please help.
