Trackpad not working on ThinkPad T14 AMD after shutdown

Hello everyone,
I am encountering an issue that causes my trackpad to freeze after I shutdown and boot up again from Arch, although it is still working fine in Windows. However, when I boot Arch after having shutdown my laptop from Windows, the trackpad works again flawlessly. My trackpoint and external USB mouse are still working fine.
The freeze happens right after I start GDM (since I use GNOME). Starting any other window manager or DM doesn't help at all. Both Xorg and Wayland suffer from the same symptom.
The trackpad is still showing in libinput:

I also tried upgrading the system as well as adding i8042.kbdreset=1 to /etc/default/grub but it still not working.
I installed Manjaro (just to check) and this issue is still happening there.

Re: Trackpad not working on ThinkPad T14 AMD after shutdown

similar issue with my (Thinkpad) P14s, but slightly different way to replicate it:
1. shutdown the laptop, wait for a few mins
2. start it up again
the touchpad COMPLETELY stops working, even in the BIOS Itself after rebooting it to the BIOS
but if I again power down completely and then start it up the touchpad begins to work again
idk what is happening here
