I am working remotely (Windows 7), and connecting to my Windows XP machine at the office via Remote Desktop via Citrix. Is there a simple way to log my activity other than just the logon and logoff? If my boss ever questions my work, I'd like a simple way to show that my machine was connected to and very active since I get much more done from home without all the distractions of an office! Thanks.

Do you log thru a VPN or Firewall? – r0ca Feb 11 '10 at 19:53

Maybe a piece of software such as RescueTime will do the trick (installed on your XP computer in the office).

If you have pretty graphs of computer usage to back up your argument, I doubt your boss will be able to argue back.

RescueTime sits in the background and measures which application, web site or (optionally) document is actively being used.

Another option is Wakoopa which also has pretty graphs.

How productive are you? Know what you use and for how long.
