Manjaro Wont Shutdown or restart and instead halts on blank screen.

Hello everyone. I just installed Manjaro for the first time but am having issues with shutting down and restarting. Whenever I do either, my computer stops on a screen that says watchdog not found. However, this does not happen on Debian based distros. Here is the last few lines of journalctl. I am happt to provide more if needed:

I have tried multiple kernals and am currently using the 5.7.9 kernal. ( Using Gnome ). I have done a bit of research but cant seem to find anything that will fix my issue.

Please help. Also, I am new to linux so please dont assume I know anything and explain in detail. Also, I am happy to provide more info if needed.

Thanks!

Edit:
I just switched to KDE and, as expected, the problem persists.

I guess this seems to be your problem according to this post if you have a lenovo product: https://support.lenovo.com/pe/en/solutions/ht100719

You need to blacklist iTCO_wdt

Open a terminal and copy&paste this into it:

sudo echo "blacklist iTCO_wdt" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-watchdog

check if it was successful:

cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-watchdog

That should add it to blacklist modules.

After reboot check if the behavior in journalctl is still there.
