Does maya just randomly disappear on anyone else? I was making good progress then. But then this about the 3rd time this has happened in the last few days. I only have myself to blame.

Do check on the Task Manager if it´s still running. If it is, you could have a chance of finding the software by ALT-Tab cycling the windows. I had Maya do that game on me for several times.

I have had maya crash on me 2 times, in my life. I reckon that is quite good atleast compared to my experience with 3DSMAX which, on average, randomly crashes 2-3 times / day.

I totally agree with you fredriksson, Maya's stability is far better than 3DS Max. One of the many reasons which made me switch to Maya.

Yes. Often. I blame my crap video card as my CPU and RAM is more than sufficient. It won't kick up a fuss, just quietly disappear with all my work.
