Just guessing, maybe there's something wrong with your installation? I know downloading the whole game client again is such a drag, but deleting and re-installing could remove that problem. You could do tomorrow when the 10 hour (TEN HOURS!!) maintenance hits.
I doubt it's that. It had been working fine until a couple days ago. I really don't wanna reinstall. lol
This happened to me a couple of times! I really don't think it's a problem with your install, I think it's an issue that needs to be patched. The logout process just seems glitchy. It really is an issue though, it's prevented my from getting my rested bonus.
I really doubt this. When you're in a rested zone, make sure to look for the moon icon under you exp. bar. There are certain areas in the game that seem like they would be sanctuaries, but aren't. If that moon icon isn't there, you're not getting your bonus.
