Windows 8 input indicator occasionally disappears





inuyasha
I upgraded to Windows 8 recently and everything worked fine for weeks. But the input indicator disappeared from the tray yesterday.
I found some temporary solutions:
1. Kill explorer.exe process and run it again manually.
2. Restart the computer.
3. Never shutdown the PC. Sleep instead.

What on earth caused the weird problem?

The problem is cause by a simple thing that the humanity will never understand ..... its just that

I do not like the Windows 8 interface and ways it does think especially on a non-touch screen laptop

I think it just takes a little getting used to. I've got Windows 8.1 running for little over a month and I rarely use it.
- most of the programs that I need are pinned to the taskbar
- I removed all unwanted tiles from the start screen and created my own categories
- Windows boots into the desktop instead of the start screen
and last but but least I'm not using any metro apps

1. what good will restarting explorer do when you reboot your machine?
2 and 3. a Windowd 8(.1) machine doesn't actually shut down, it goes into hibernation when shutting down. that's why it boots up so fast and why a restart takes for ever ( because that's when it actually powers down and up again)
