My keyboard doesn't work till I hit it

Well, I know this is not a Manjaro bug, but most likely you will find interesting.

During boot up my keyboard doesn’t work till I literally start hitting it. Then it works without problems for the rest of the session.

What are the physics behind this? Thanks.
