X1 Carbon 6th Gen: Spacebar unresponsive after waking from sleep

Hello everyone,


Thank you very much in advance for your help.


I have a X1 Carbon 6th Gen 20KH that's about 2 months old. Recently (I can't remember after which update in particular) my spacebar has stopped working after coming back out of sleep mode. It will randomly resume function after about 5-15 minutes. Otherwise a restart fixes the issue immediately.


The onscreen keyboard works fine. I also tried onscreen keytracker and it's ONLY the spacebar that's not working, all other keys work fine and there's no stuck keys.


I have tried a lot of things as follows:


1) updating and reinstalling drivers for Lenovo Hotkey, Lenovo Power Management, BIOS (1.30), Intel IO, Intel Management Engine, Synaptics Drivers. Uninstalling Windows keyboard drivers.


2) SFC /scannow, DISM /healthcheck (no corruption)


3) Malware scan


I have called Lenovo support and advice was to reinstall windows or send in the machine. I am not in position to do either and hoping for a simpler fix if possible. 


Thank you so much again.
