Keyboard and trackpad stop working in MBP 15

When waking MBP 15’’ 2018 from sleep, the keyboard and trackpad stop working. I have to reboot for it to work again. I already tried to fix the issue using several online guides, nothing helped so far. Any help with this one?

Hey There @Ashton,

Resetting the SMC should do the trick. This seems to have fixed the issue. Note that this will reboot the MacBook, so you will lose any unsaved work.

Shut down the computer.
Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.
On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.
Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.
Press the power button to turn on the computer.

Note: The LED on the MagSafe power adapter may change states or temporarily turn off when you reset the SMC.
