lastLogon computer account

Hi,

just a quick question on lastLogon for a computer object.
I have a machine that i have joined into the domain however nobody has
logged into.

I’ve notice that the lastLogon attribute refreshes for this computer
object eventhough nobody logs into the computer or has the computer
been rebooted.

My question is, is there some sort of refresh interval for the
lastLogon attribute for the computer object?

Computer objects (accounts) logon too. When a computer
starts, it
authenticates with a DC. The lastLogon attribute reflects
this.

Both user and computers have this attribute (as they derive
from the same
classes).

but is there a refresh interval to lastLogon?
when a computer is left on over the weekend, does the lastLogon value
changes for that computer object when you check it let’s say on monday
having nobody ever accessing that particular computer?

It doesn't matter if someone has used the computer or not. In fact a person
using it has no bearing at all unless they turn it off or turn it on. A computer
can auth anytime it needs to without any interference from anyone.
