Updated browser, deleted cookies, deleted temp internet files. I still can't log out.....the only way for me to log out of Ebay is when I come to the Answer Center and log out from here....hopefully someone has some more ideas ???

You have an older version web browser that is not compatable with the new ebay pages. If you go to your internet options and delete your cookies and temp internet files, it will release you, and you will then be signed out. Note: unchecking the "keep me signed in" on the login page will not prevent this from happening. Recommend updating your web browser.

Don't click up at your name just hover the mouse in that area. A drop down screen will appear there and then you can choose log out.  I use a laptop and regular computer for eBay, it happens on both.
