On the status line (the row of icons near the top of the screen) you should see some magnets, these let you switch into those snapping modes, this should at least solve your problem partially until you fix the issue.
@Joopson: Hold the move key (normally w) and left click to bring up a mouse menu, should have the option keep spacing to the right, if its ticked when you move many objects for snapping it'll maintain the offsets, if its not ticked then all objects snap to that point.
Using status line is not an option for me, too much time to turn snap on and off..
Anyway, i found solution, and it wasn't Maya fault..
on my notebook _was_ installed some third party software called "Touchpad Blocker", and in some way it began to block snap with shotcurts O_O
@Joopson, to move multiple objects(not components, there are "Retain component spacing" for them) snapped, the only solution i see is using "Object" Move axis in move tool options.
But here are some hidden troubles like rotated and not freezed transformations, so u'll see some weird translations, it'll become worse if you use some deformers or constrains and want to keep them.
but in clean scene with Freezed transformations it will work well.
