You should use the term your users see on the UI (for example, Login
dialog). Either term is acceptable, so long as you use it
consistently. If you have a say in the UI design (ahhhh... a perfect
world!), go for Login. It seems to be more prevalent and it's also the
preferred term by the Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical
Documentation (for what it's worth!).
