That happens fairly frequently on both the PC and Mac platforms. I believe it may have something to do with Maya/Mental Ray crashing during a render.

For anyone who doesn't know, just go to your plugin manager ( Window/Settings&Prefs/Plugin Manager ) and check the Loaded and Auto Loade boxes beside Mayatomr.dll
