Xbox Game Pass PC: Not responding from Intern Manual
Game stops accepting button inputs after taking a closer look at collection in the manual. Happened immediately after getting the intern manual, allowed force quit easily and had no issues with save file. I went back into the game and it happened again with a different collectible.
This is fixed in the latest patch.
I also have this issue with the inventory and with the Otto-matic vending machines.
I find that alt tabbing away from the game and back, then pressing escape will get me out of the menu. It doesn't solve the issue, but it's better than having to reset everything. A work around for the menu that works for me is to only use the keyboard to navigate, it doesn't soft lock unless I click. Unfortunately this doesn't work in the vending machines.

same issue here on Game Pass. Only option is Force Quit and restart. No clue what the deal is, hoping it gets fixed because the game is phenomenal otherwise.
EDIT: Immediately after posting this comment, I was able to alt-tab into the game and pressed escape to close the manual. Still can't interact with anything inside of it, and if I open it again, I have to alt-tab out and back in in order to close it again. Going to quit the game anyway, concerned that this will cause issues down the line.

Having the same issue as well even with the upgrade menu. ALT/TAB worked first few times it happened but now it doesnt seem to fix the issue. Have to ALT/F4 and load back in and not open the manual or go into the upgrade menu.

I'm having the same issue on Steam PC.
For me a workaround is to tab out and back into the game. Then I can navigate or exit the Intern Manual again.
I tested it a bit more. Using the keyboard everything works fine, even checking out a closer look at unique items. But whenever I click anywhere in the Intern Manual the game hangs. Tabbing out and back makes me regain control.
Having the same issue and it also happens when interacting with Otto-matic. Windows key or alt-tab can help but the game can also get fully stuck.
I have a steam backer code and am playing on PC and also experiencing some issues interacting with the intern manual. Sometimes I need to hit the windows key and then try to navigate through and it works. Otherwise it's a force quit and restart the game. Game looks great though and I am enjoying it otherwise.
Had same problem!
