How does Saito know for sure that the mission is accomplished? He went to limbo before he could see Fischer open the safe.

And since Cobb and Saito are the last to wake up on the plane, shouldn't they still be connected to the dream machine when they wake up?

Cobb rescued him from his worst fear of "dying alone of old age" (not sure if it's a proper quote), so it might be that he no longer cares about the mission and gives Cobb his reward out of pure gratitude.

Alternatively, it is a strong argument if you think that the real mission was to save Cobb instead. Then he is most certain that the mission was a success!
