Read information about user activity

I wonder if there is any chance to read the last time when the actually logged user have changed the mouse cursor and stroke the key.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Are you looking for a keylogger? Everything that a user does is dumped into a file that you can access....

You can run who to see who is logged in and when they logged in. I don't know how you would know when they pressed a key or moved the mouse without a keylogger though
