Maybe he came too after they opened the link.

Uh...

When you fall asleep in the Avatar the link automatically stops.

He was in link for so long that he was unconcious when the link ended. The others had opened the link pod and were trying to wake him up, because they were worried that he had died or something had happened to him after the Thanator/Palulukan chased him off.

Yeah hense the shining the light in his eyes when they were calling him out of it. He was unconcious or otherwise out of it when he came out of link.

But he couldn't have been unconscious the whole time he was meeting the na'vi, right? I always assumed the machine told them when the link had ended, and they rushed to open the pod.

ALPHA BRAINWAVES ARE EASY TO CHART.
They could have been watching for him to enter a dream state in his Unil Tiran Tokx and awakened him at that point.

They were probably watching the telemetry to see if he was OK, then rushed over to it when he started to wake up again, which is when it would open.

Most likely this.

Yeah, that won't satisfy most here.

I would agree that the link would automatically stop and retract from the scan-ring when the avatar "fell asleep" and therefore the driver was no longer in control of it. I haven't seen any controls inside the link bed, so the driver would likely rely on the auto-retraction to get clear of the scan-ring so they could open the lid on the bed.

Plus we know link automatically stops when it loses connection with an Avatar anyway (see final battle), so its probably safe to say a couple of alarms went off and the techs/support staff gathered around after hearing them and seeing that Jake did not get out.

I always assumed, since they said "you were dug in like a tick", that he was asleep himself in the link because he wasn't used to using the avatar. Jake almost forgot that his avatar wasn't really himself, only an extension, and his mind was entering sleep mode because to this. Did I make my point clear enough?

I think the monitoring devices in the link machines can tell when the link is about to be broken. Note that when we first see Grace there is a PA announcement in the lab stating "Drivers coming out of link" and the technicians are all bustling about. I would imagine that in Jake's case Grace and the others were waiting by Jake's capsule (what else could they do?) and when the link was broken by Jake's avatar going to sleep they opened the capsule, found Jake still unconscious and tried to wake him up--and that's where we, the audience, come in.

Seems likely to me. They were probably standing around trying to determine if he was OK, checking any monitoring it has of him, they'd notice any change in brain activity quickly considering the detail we see at the start of the link.
