I updated to Fedora 36 and the problem persists.

I just discovered a workaround to boot Fedora on battery power. If I press F12 to get to the boot menu, go into the "Change boot options" entry, press Esc, computer reboots and voila! Grub menu shows and Fedora boots normally.

Could this issue be related to the fact that my /boot folder is on a BTFS partition (root)?

I entered the BIOS configuration utility and added a 5 second POST delay (intended for reading any messages). The issue has been solved or rather worked around.
