The Logout button is used to log out of Old School RuneScape. The button is located on the bottom of the . The logout button resembles a small door. Once it is clicked, the player must click another button to actually log out. There is a grey bar reading "World Switcher" or the red bar reading "Click here to logout".
Players may click the logout button at any time, although players in combat must wait 10 seconds after done fighting in order for the button to actually log them out.
If a player does nothing (i.e. not clicking or typing) for 5 minutes, the player is automatically logged out. This can be prevented by moving the cursor slightly without clicking on anything. The player will also be logged out if they have been playing for 6 hours straight, regardless of activity.
Players cannot switch between worlds when under combat and must wait 10 seconds after combat to switch. Players will also logout if they have switched worlds multiple times in a short amount of time.
- In RuneScape Classic, the game automatically logged you off if you stayed in one spot for over 5 minutes, regardless of whether or not you were doing anything.
