What is the purpose of the systemd-logind daemon?

From the man page:
systemd-logind is a system service that manages user logins. It is responsible for: · Keeping track of users and sessions, their processes and their idle state. This is implemented by allocating a systemd slice unit for each user below user.slice, and a scope unit below it for each concurrent session of a user. Also, a per-user service manager is started as system service instance of [email protected] for each logged in user. · Generating and managing session IDs. If auditing is available and an audit session ID is already set for a session, then this ID is reused as the session ID. Otherwise, an independent session counter is used. · Providing PolicyKit-based access for users for operations such as system shutdown or sleep · Implementing a shutdown/sleep inhibition logic for applications · Handling of power/sleep hardware keys · Multi-seat management · Session switch management · Device access management for users · Automatic spawning of text logins (gettys) on virtual console activation and user runtime directory management
