Check the plugin editor if you see any application disappear, in fact.

Yeah, the first time my mental ray disappeared I started freaking out, too. I did some really weird stuff to render a scene through another scene before I figured out how to get it back O.o

~I have no idea what I'm doing~

a little tip to know if mental ray is switched off, is when the "Output Window" does not appear on start up when you open maya itself.
