Mac or Windows?
Assuming VMWare Player on Windows, there's both a Reset and a Power Down option in the menu.
When the clock disappears, your Status Bar has been nuked and it doesn't restart itself. Resetting or "power cycling" (virtually) the sim should get it back.

welcome to the forums! to restart the simulator, in the top menu go to Virtual Machine > Restart and it will reboot the sim. good luck!

I get this too. The more I use the simulator between soft resets the more it deteriorates. Soon Alerts won't show up any more and the keyboad disappears, then I can't see the main screen. Every few hours I have to reboot it.
