Faulty settings in Power Management is also one of the likely reasons for this problem. You can change to a different setting mode to see if the problem is resolved: 

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time. Type devmgmt.msc and press Enter

2) Expand Mice and other pointing devices. For keyboard driver, expand Keyboards

3) Right-click the device name of your mouse or keyboard driver and click Properties.

4) Click Power Management, make sure the box for Allow the computer to turn off his device to save power option is un-checked and click OK.

    Please do try these troubleshooting steps that might help.
    – Open Task Manager, press Windows key + R and type “devmgmt.msc” and press OK.
    – In Device Manager expand keyboard and right click on the driver for keyboard then select Properties.
    – Go to Power Management tab and remove the check on “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” then click OK.
    – Reboot the PC and test it again.
    – If that doesn’t work go back to Device Manager then Uninstall the keyboard driver and reboot the laptop so it would install the driver back automatically.
