when you click the button, try typing something and press enter.

try logging out and logging back in. that generally works for me when spotlight or anything else stops working

I am now getting exactly the same thing!

If I do commmand-space the blue square around the icon appears with a slight shadow on the far left of the screen under the blue apple. If I type anything nothing happens. If I do option-command-space the spotlight window appears and works fine. What is going on?

I've fixed it by changing my screen resolution and then put it back to normal again.
