When her and Cobb finally reached real life, didn't she notice that the totem stopped spinning indefinitely? Why did she think she was still in a dream?
Answer: Mal was so drawn in her "reality" while they're in Limbo. Then when Cobb did inception on her (that their world isn't real), the idea sticks in her mind.
Cobb & Mal learn about dream layers, they go deeper & deeper till they lost their way.
Cobb: We were working together. We were exploring the concept of a dream within a dream.
I kept pushing things. I wanted to go deeper and deeper. I wanted to go further. I just didn't understand the concepts that hours could turn into years down there. That we could get trapped so deep. That when we... when wind up on the shore of our subconscious we lost sight of what was real.
Ariadne: How long were you stuck there?
Cobb: Something like fifty years.
In the LIMBO, they built their world based on their memories.
They spent 50 years there, at first it feels like gods, then Cobb feels something just not right. But Mal chose to think that it's real. She locked away a secret, deep inside herself, something she once knew to be true... but chose to forget.
Cobb: It wasn’t so bad at first, feeling like gods. Eventually it’s become impossible for me to live like that.
Ariadne: But what about her?
Cobb: She locked away a secret, deep inside herself, something she once knew to be true... but chose to forget.
Cobb said he go deeper to search what's on Mal's mind, then he found the Totem is locked in the safe in the doll house, in the house where Mal use to grow up. Cobb planted the idea that their word isn't real in Mal's mind. Cobb spins the Totem, it never fall in dreams. This also symbolizes that in Mal's mind the Totem keep on spinning, that they're still dreaming. After they suicide and wake up in real world, the idea still sticks in Mal's mind.
Mal thinks they're still dreaming, and they need to die to "wake up", then she jumps from the hotel room on their anniversary day, leaving Cobb accused as a murnderer.
Cobb: Eventually, She tells me the truth that she was possessed by an idea, just one simple idea that changed everything, that our world wasn't real and in order to get back to the reality, We'll have to kill ourselves.
Mal: You're infecting my mind!
Cobb: I was trying to save you.
Mal: You betrayed me, but you can still make amends. You can still keep your promise. We can still be together, right here. In the world we built together.
The danger in Limbo is people won't remember that they're dreaming, they'll lose sight of reality. And if that continues for a long long time and they fail to regain their senses of which is reality or dream, their brain would enter a coma state.
Eames (talking to Cobb): So now we're trapped in Fischer's mind battling his own private army... and if we get killed, we'll be lost in limbo till our brains turn to scrambled egg, hmm?
Mal was trapped in her own belief that Limbo is real because she enjoys living there so much that it's becoming her reality. One of the reason is because they built their world based on memories.
Cobb: Never recreate from your memory, always imagine new places!

I've watched inception recently and I have 2 questions about it.
1) What did Cobb plant in Mals brain? What made her go mad? What did he do to try and 'save' her from their dream?
2) Whar did Saito (the asian guy) ask of Cobb so that he could go home? What did he want to know from Fischer?
Thanks- I just didn't understand these two parts!
Answer: 1) When Cobb and his wife Mal explored the deep layers of dreams together, they were so happy together in their shared dreams that Mal wanted to forget that she was dreaming. She hid away her totem, which had stopped spinning in a safe, so she would never be reminded that she was in a dream. She indeed forgot that she and her husband were in a dream, and she forgot that she had to wake up and return to reality.
Cobb wanted Mal to remember that they were dreaming so they could wake up and return to reality. So Cobb found Mal's secret safe and left her totem spinning in the safe. In a dream, once Mal's totem had started spinning, it would never stop spinning. So when Mal opened her safe and saw her totem spinning non-stop, she immediately realized that her world -- i.e., the world she was in -- was not real. Then she realized she had to wake up and return to the reality to Cobb. And they did. They killed themselves in their shared dream, woke up and return to the real world.
The problem is that idea, that her world was not real, became an "inception" in her mind. The inception implanted deep into her subconscious mind. Even after she had woken up and returned to reality with Cobb, she still continued to believe that her world -- the reality that she had returned to -- was not real. She had become confused, and she believed that she and Cobb had to killed themselves again to wake up.
2) Before Mal killed herself in the real world, she planted false evidences to frame Cobb for her death -- so she could force Cobb to kill himself together with her, as she wanted them both to wake up and get back to the reality. After Mal jumped off the building, Cobb became a suspect for his wife's "murder" (which was in fact a suicide.) So Cobb ran, left his country and became a fugitive. If he returned to his country or his "home", he would be arrested immediately and trialed for his wife's "murder".
That is why Cobb could not go home. That is why Saito told Cobb he could help him go home. Saito had done background check on Cobb, and found out Cobb had an outstanding warrant for the murder of his wife. Saito had powerful connections and influences, so he could make certain arrangements and make Cobb's warrant and records go away.
Saito's company and Fisher father's company are competitors in business. When Fisher father died, Fisher Jr would inherit his father's company. Saito wanted to plant an idea in Fisher Jr's mind (i.e., an "inception") that would cause Fisher Jr to break up his father's company later. Saito did not want to know anything from Fisher. He wanted to plant an idea into Fisher's mind.
So im taking time out to study particles and all was well untill i tried out "mal". Unlike aber and doch i cant grasp even a small definition or rule for using it other than for emphasis.
So if i just throw mal into sentences im emphasising then will i sound correct.
Eg. Kommen Sie hier, schnell!
Could i say, Kommen mal Sie hier, schnell?
Im just guessing where the mal goes in the sentence so could someone tell me where it goes and provide examples.
Answer: That's about all it does, something like adding "just" in English. You would also say "her", not "hier", and that's a perfect example, but the word order is a bit off: Kommen Sie mal her. And Germans don't tack on "schnell" all the time like they do on British television.
"Mal" is shortened from "einmal", and sometimes that meaning is still apparent:
Ich habe das schon mal in Griechenland gesehen. (I saw that once in Greece.)
Mal so, mal so. (sometimes this way, sometimes the other.)
Depending on context, it can blunt the force of an imperative or emphasise it, depending on tone:
Höre mal endlich zu! (So listen already!)
Beeilt euch mal! (Get a move on!)
Sing mal was Schönes! (Sing something pretty!) This makes the imperative less direct.
Or in certain frozen expressions:
Sag mal, kannst du mir 10€ leihen? "So tell me, can you lend me 10€?)
or the ubiquitous Bavarian:
Schau' mir moi (Schauen wir mal) = Well, let's see...
This particle is the one with the least perceptible meaning and yet is used the most, often just as a one syllable filler to round out the sentence melody.
One meaning, however, is easy to grasp: 5 x 5 = fünf mal fünf
It really isn't that vital that you learn how to use "mal" actively. Using particles idiomatically is the last stage of learning German, so if you're still mystified by them, it really won't matter until you spend time in a German-speaking country. Then you'll pick them up without realising it.
