Affected system

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga

since Windows 8.1 Update 1?

one way to reproduce (it can happen randomly also) - flip to tablet mode, put to sleep. On wake up, no mouse pointer


to see whether the missing cursor is, you can change the mouse property in control panel so that holding down Ctrl would show animation of where the cursor is currently.
