    yes, you have to be logged in, but you don't have to be sitting at it.

    on *nix just ssh username@computername

    on windows telnet username@computername

    you may need to turn telnet on with windows, you can also do this remotely by remote management.

    alternately use rdp/etc to log in and run the shell

    What about using BgInfo to display details on the desktop? I've played with this in school, was used more at one of my last places of work.

    It can load when the user logs in and shows details you want it too.

    You can then look at the Event Viewer and Shared Folders. Shared Folders is what you're more after, as you can see who has any files open.
    Thanks, I have looked at Shared Folders, which shows no open files currently. The computer has been on constantly for a fortnight and I haven't been informed that work was to be carried out in the holidays. What I was after was - had the machine been left on for a purpose, was someone in last week during the holidays, or had a shutdown been forgotten at the end of the Friday.

    Will wait until tomorrow and ask in the office. Thanks for the help everyone.

    also "systeminfo" at the CMD will also return uptime, (among other things).

    Maybe try SNMP:

    snmpget -v 2c -c public <IP or name of server> system.sysUpTime.0

    Translation: No problem. As far as I can tell with three-letter acronyms, your mileage may vary but on the other hand ???? somebody explains them without saying "read the instructional guidebook which accompanies your product person who is new to the system".
