The problem is in Windows 8. Disable power savings on USB ports in which you connect your joystick.

I did that, this is still the issue for me, and looks like for everybody who got Win 8 or Win 8.1

Actually re-asking Windows for the controllers every time you open the controls settings is "why" the controllers get lost. (No controllers are returned by Windows)

Will close this one as a duplicate of the "controller lost" issue.
