I'm not familiar with the Active Directory and a User keeps getting locked out of their account for no reason at all. I am trying to find a 'log' to see when they log on/off but can not seem to find one.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You should enable auditing of "Account Logon Events" in "Domain Controller Security Policy".

You should then be able to see logon events in the Event Viewer on the DC.

I would tend to lean more toward the user is fat fingering their password.

Here's an article on it though: Finding why a user is locked out in Active Directory
