This is what we do in my organization as well. We use log in as a verb
and login as a noun or an adjective. We use the unhyphenated form.

Good luck,

> Technically speaking, Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 11th Edition (I think it's the latest) gives "log on" (or log in)--that is, 2 words, no hyphen--as the verb form, and "log-on"--the hyphenated form--as the noun. This is the fairly standard dictionary treatment, I think, though "logon," the no-hyphen form, is also widely accepted as the noun form. As for whether to use "on" or "in," I don't think it matters.
