Keyboard never automatically displays on Metro UI

I've had this happen to be a few times.

Since I'm waiting for the Touch Cover 2 to become available (I'm not bitter!!!) I've had to make do with the onscreen keyboard.

Usually in Metro apps such as IE when I tap on an input the keyboard pops up. Sometimes something must break and the keyboard stops appearing in metro mode until I do a full reboot. This is very sad to me. Anyone else experience this also?

Mine NEVER has the keyboard pop up automatically in Metro Mode. I ALWAYS have to call up the charm bar and tap a couple times to get the keyboard to show.

IT IS A TERRIBLE FLAW IN WINDOWS 8 AND 8.1.

Somebody at Microsoft SHOULD BE FIRED.

The only time I have to call up the keyboard manually is when I use Desktop applications. But, I'm sure that's by design. It may be worth noting, however, that I'm not running the latest firmware update as I did have problems with that. So, you could argue we're running different versions and that may be why I'm not experiencing this problem.

I get this as well from time to time and have also resorted to a reboot to sort it out! Pretty annoying.
