You can't shut the laptop down sometimes. A user reported there is need for a microcode to shutdown [1] and [2] . You can get the related microcode here: [3] but it does not fix the issue, it just makes it happen less often.

With Linux 4.3 (4.2?) and up, there is no shutdown issue.

There are issues with it while running Linux 4.4.

Use Kernel 4 and up, and put this "i8042.kbdreset=1" in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT for touchpad to work after a restart. Bug here [4]
