If you can escape limbo via death then, if you want to leave limbo, why not commit suicide upon entering

When the person enters limbo, they are not aware of this fact.  They don´t know they are in limbo, someone else has to tell them this and convince them to kill themselves.

I wondered about this too; why didn't Saito just commit suicide when he went into limbo? But I think that when a person goes into limbo on their own, they don't know they're in limbo. Cobb can't remember why he is there either, but once they meet and speak they begin to realise that they know each other from before. Cobb manages to realise they are in limbo and tells Saito to come back.
