When the time on the machine timer runs out, people who are dreaming wake up, but if a person is in limbo at that time, would that person still wake up, or is killing yourself only way out of limbo?

The person would wake up. However because time in limbo would be almost infinite, one would experience time that seems forever before the timer runs out, and the brain would "drain out", which may lead to a lost of memory.

I believe you would be in a persistent vegetative state, not asleep, not dreaming, but unable to interact with the world around you, perpetually unfocused on reality.
